Staff Report

April’s average global temperature registered at 1.98 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th century average, marking the 12th month in a row with a new record high temperature.

It’s the longest such streak since record-keeping started in 1880, according to NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information, which released its monthly State of the Climate report this week. The average global temperature for the year-to-date (January to April) is also the warmest on record, and by such a large margin that most climate experts expect 2016 to end up as the warmest year ever for planet Earth.
