May Breaks Another Heat Record

Last month was the hottest May in modern history, marking the 13th consecutive month that global temperature records have been shattered, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Thursday.
That makes the longest such streak in the 137 years the record has existed, AFP reported.
The powerful but waning El Nino weather phenomenon – which tends to warm equatorial waters in the Pacific – may have contributed to this year’s record, climate scientists said, but doesn’t explain all of it.
“The state of the climate so far this year gives us much cause for alarm,” World Climate Research Program director David Carlson director said. “The super El Nino is only partly to blame. Abnormal is the new normal.”
May’s combined average temperature came to 0.87 degrees Celsius above the 20th-century average for the month of 14.8 degrees Celsius.
