The data comes courtesy of Gavin Schmidt, the man in charge of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, which is responsible for measuring the Earth's temperature. Temperatures are now the highest they've ever been in the 136 years we've been keeping track of them, and just in case you don't trust the record-keepers over at NASA, the stupidly hot temperatures were corroborated by the Japan Meteorological Agency.
The upward trend worries folks like Jason Furtado, a professor of meteorology at the University of Oklahoma, who told the Post that this slew of record-breaking months is, to put it lightly, "a little alarming."
We'd say, "See you in hell," but it appears we're already living there.
