US temperatures keep breaking records
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data shows that the “2-month stretch between July of 2011 and June of 2012 was the warmest year in the contiguous United States since recordkeeping began in 1895,” according to The Hill.
“The temperatures narrowly outpaced the old record, which was for the 12-months from June 2011 to May of 2012… Hot weather in June also helped make the first half of 2012 the warmest first-half of a year on record.”
The Washington Post notes the odds of the record heat occurring randomly is approximately 1 in 1.6 million.
