April was Earth’s 400th warmer-than-normal month in a row

This article discusses the continued pattern of increasing temperatures across the globe, 400 consecutive months of higher-than-normal temperatures. Wow!

Do you remember February 1985? Perhaps you were rocking out to Wham! and Foreigner while teasing your bangs. Or maybe you hadn’t even been born. Either way, it was a significant month for the planet — the last one that was cooler than normal, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

In every single month after February 1985, the average global temperature has been warmer than normal — 400 months in a row. Anyone born after that month has never experienced a “cool” month for Earth, let alone a normal one.

It’s certainly a milestone for the planet, but it’s not surprising and it’s nothing new.
