It really goes beyond the warmth in the months however and goes to the increase in fossil fuels and all of the ways that impacts the environment. The data has been very clear for a long time and most countries around the world understand that global warming is happening, but the United States is not there yet because the issue has been made political.
Yes, the fact that every month this year has been the hottest on record indicates that global warming is real and a given fact. We have been given so many scientifically proven examples of the effects of global warming, there is no rational way to deny it. However, there are those who will deny it with their dying breaths.
The latest data confirms global warming is real and not merely a scientific theory. This year, every month has been the hottest on record. But, it goes beyond this one year. Over the last several years, each subsequent year has been the highest on record. Most scientists have accepted global warming as a fact.
No, this does not make global warming a given fact. One year's worth of weather is not enough evidence to prove global weather patterns. Weather is dynamic and never exactly the same. To prove global warming, scientists must look at weather patterns over a number of years or even decades.
