Still hot

Another month, another record. The global temperature in April according to NASA (go here for the main page) was 1.11 degrees Celsius above the 19511980 average. No month on record, starting in 1880, was more than 1 degree above the average until October 2015; every month since then has been. 2014 broke the record for the highest average temperature, .75 degrees Celsius above average; 2015 broke that record, .87 degrees Celsius above average; so far 2016 is 1.18 degrees Celsius above average.

If you’re not a global warming denier, you might notice a trend (I first put together this graph here):

and you’ll notice this doesn’t even include this year yet. This really is quite scary.
