Yes, we all know about Trump’s legal difficulties and how the Supreme Court rejected the so-called “Independent State Legislature” theory.
But it’s still getting warmer outside.
Take a look. This is some science from the scientists at NOAA:
May 2023 was the third-warmest May for the globe in NOAA’s 174-year
record. The May global surface temperature was 0.97°C (1.75°F) above the
20th-century average of 14.8°C (58.6°F). The past nine Mays have ranked
among the 10 warmest on record. May 2023 marked the 47th consecutive
May and the 531st consecutive month with global temperatures, at least
nominally, above the 20th-century average.
And, like always, the chart:
Then there’s this for the three months March-April-May:
The March–May 2023 global surface temperature was 1.06°C (1.91°F) above
the 20th-century average. This ranks as the third-warmest March–May
period in the 174-year record and 0.10°C (0.18°F) cooler than the
warmest March–May period (2016). The ten warmest March-May periods have
all occurred from 2010 to present.
And finally, the year-to-date:
The January–May global surface temperature ranked fourth warmest in the
174-year record at 1.01°C (1.82°F) above the 1901–2000 average of 13.1°C
(55.5°F). According to NCEI’s statistical analysis, the year 2023 is
very likely to rank among the 10 warmest years on record.
Yep. It’s still getting warmer out there.
