Earth Records its Warmest Spring

The planet experienced its warmest spring ever recorded, scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced Thursday.

They noted that the temperature during the period from March to May was significantly above average.

The average global temperature between March and May is 13.7 degrees Celsius (56.7 degrees Fahrenheit), but that span in 2016 was more than 1 degree Celsius warmer, an increase that is especially alarming.

Usually, records are broken by hundredths and tenths of a degree. March through May is spring in the northern hemisphere, where 90 percent of the globe’s population lives, and autumn for the southern hemisphere.
