MANHATTAN, Kan. – If ever there was a year to make one think about climate change, it may be this year.
“July marked the 36th consecutive July and 329th consecutive month with a global temperature above the 20th century average,” said Johannes Feddema, professor of geography at the University of Kansas. “The last below-average temperature July was July 1976 and the last below-average temperature month was February 1985.”
