NOAA's data. The hottest August ever recorded. It was the hottest May, the hottest June, the 4th hottest July, and now the hottest August (double click to get bigger chart; source here).
And the hottest 12 months ever.
And the equal hottest 60 months ever.
But of course, The Cane Toad has told us that "Climate Change is Crap".
Disclaimer. After nearly 40 years managing money for some of the largest life offices and investment managers in the world, I think I have something to offer. These days I'm retired, and I can't by law give you advice. While I do make mistakes, I try hard to do my analysis thoroughly, and to make sure my data are correct (old habits die hard!) Also, don't ask me why I called it "Volewica". It's too late, now.
BTW, clicking on most charts will produce the original-sized, i.e., bigger version.
