Last month was the hottest July for the entire planet since record-keeping began 140 years ago, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). 

This July was 1.7 degrees warmer than last century’s average. It’s part of a larger trend as nine of the ten hottest Julys have been recorded since 2005.

Ice, meanwhile, continues to disappear simultaneously. Both the Arctic and Antarctic set records for lowest amount of sea ice coverage in 41 years.
