July was world's hottest month on record, World Meteorological Organization says






Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says the latest data from the World Meteorological Organization shows that the month of July "at least equalled if not surpassed the hottest month in recorded history" — and it followed the hottest June ever.

The UN chief told reporters Thursday that "this is even more significant because the previous hottest month, July 2016, occurred during one of the strongest El Niño's ever," which was not the case this year.

Guterres said this means the world is on track for the period from 2015 to 2019 "to be the five hottest years on record."

He warned that if all nations don't take action now to tackle climate change and global warming, extreme weather events happening now will be "just the tip of the iceberg."

2. Yes, July was hot.

But it was a dry heat.

And Mar-a-Lago closes for the season anyway, so no problem.

3. Until they tell us that August was the hottest month on record

I cannot remember when July was ever cooler than August, on average, unless a hurricane was involved.
