Land & Ocean Temperature Percentiles, July 2019
HOTTEST on Record
Land & Ocean Temperature Percentiles, July 2019, NOAA map and report.

The July temperature across global land and ocean surfaces was 1.71°F above the 20th century average of 60.4°F and was the highest for July in the 1880–2019 record. July 2019 bested the previous record—set in 2016—by 0.05°F. NOAA. Big Version.



Assessing the Global Climate in July 2019:
July was the warmest month on record for the globe,
NOAA, August 2019.


Warmest Month on Record
"...the warmest month overall in the 140-year NOAA global temperature dataset record, which dates back to 1880. The year-to-date temperature for 2019 tied with 2017 as the second warmest January–July on record."

Long Series of Records
"July 2019 also marks the 43rd consecutive July and the 415th consecutive month with temperatures, at least nominally, above the 20th century average."

2.21°F Above Average !!
An "OMG"-Level of Heating
"The July globally averaged land surface temperature was 2.21°F above the 20th century average of 57.8°F and the second-highest July land temperature in the 140-year record. July 2017 holds the record for the highest July global land temperature departure from average at 2.23°F."

Highest SST on Record
"The July globally averaged sea surface temperature was 1.51°F above the 20th century monthly average of 61.5°F and the highest global sea surface temperature for July on record."

Smallest Antarctic Sea Ice on Record
"The July 2019 Antarctic sea ice extent was 260,000 square miles (4.3%) below the 1981–2010 average and was the smallest July extent in the 41-year record."

"This line plot shows yearly temperature anomalies from 1880 to 2018, with respect to the 1951-1980 mean, as recorded by NASA, NOAA, the Japan Meteorological Agency, the Berkeley Earth research group, and the Met Office Hadley Centre (UK). Though there are minor variations from year to year, all five temperature records show peaks and valleys in sync with each other. All show rapid warming in the past few decades, and all show the past decade has been the warmest."

Bottom Line

UN Reports Major Planetary Climate & Ecosystem Breakdown, Global Extinction Event Underway

Almost Done
All's we've got to do to finish the complete destruction of our traditional world climate, weather, and the fertility of our ecosystems is to keep growing for just a few more years as irresponsibly as we've been growing over the past fifty years.

Land of Liars
The momentum of our current greed and corruption should easily carry us beyond the point of no return for our climate & ecology (and our economy!), no matter what lies we continue to tell ourselves about our greed being, "green," and our greed-driven irresponsible growth not being the cause of our metaphysical breakdown.

It is. Those are self-interested lies told by self-interested liars.

Directly Responsible
Our greed-driven irresponsible growth is directly responsible for our ethical and environmental breakdowns that have respectively drained our land and people of our fertility and wealth.

Directly Responsible...and the consequences are rapidly deepening.

Support Tahoe to Whitney

The Tahoe to Whitney Trail Guide and Magazine are walked, written, funded, and supported by my efforts, with the help of kindred spirits and my sister.

We offer valuable Trail Guide, Skills, Weather, News and Analysis.

My goal is to get you out to see your natural and social potential. Help me keep this unique resource accessible and expanding towards its potential. We've a lot of miles to cover ahead...

If you feel these efforts are valuable, I'm cordially inviting you to support them, here:



I am currently working towards publishing the completed guide between Tahoe & Yosemite as an e-book, while converting this "blog" to a fine magazine format. You will like the results! Help Tahoe to Whitney reach its potential!
