Planet Sweats: July 3 Sets Unofficial Record as Hottest Day in Human History!

On July 3, the planet experienced what is unofficially recorded as the hottest day in human history, according to scientists from the Climate Reanalyzer project at the University of Maine.

During July 3 and 4, high-temperature records were broken in Quebec and northwestern Canada, as well as in Peru.

Numerous cities across the United States, ranging from Medford, Oregon to Tampa, Florida, have been enduring unprecedented high temperatures, reaching all-time highs. In Beijing, temperatures exceeded 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) for nine consecutive days last week.

Although this global record is still awaiting confirmation from esteemed climate measurement organizations like the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), it signifies that the effects of climate change are pushing boundaries never witnessed before.


Deke Arndt, the director of the National Center for Environmental Information, a division of NOAA, emphasized that while a single day’s observation may not carry as much weight as monthly or yearly records, this global milestone will be taken into account by NOAA when calculating official climate data.

According to the University of Maine’s Climate Reanalyzer, a widely-used tool among climate scientists to assess global conditions, the average temperature for July 3 reached 17.01 degrees Celsius (62.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
