Posted by on Wednesday, September 21, 2016

We just experienced the hottest month ever in August.

That has made 2016 the hottest northern summer ever.

Once again this year the Northwest Passage has seen an ice-free summer.

The August 2016 temperature departure of 0.92°C above the 20th century average of 15.6°C has beat last years record of 0.05°C. 

Additionally the global land and ocean temperature in June to August was 0.89°C above the 20th century average of 15.6°C.
