Hottest Summer in History?


We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: this summer was a hot one! While the continued summer heat is great for air conditioning and heating professionals, it’s not so great for homeowners tackling their AC bills.

Have you ever thought about what this heat means for the Earth? It wasn’t just hot in Southern California this summer! In fact, the summer of 2015 was Earth’s hottest summer on record, according to NOAA, NASA and Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA). This means that Earth had the hottest consecutive June, July and August in history. Can you believe that?

According to The Washington Post, temperatures climbed about 1.5 degrees warmer than the long-term average, surpassing 1998 and 2014, which were the previous hottest summers on record depending on the dataset1.

California, as well as Nevada, Oregon and Washington, has experienced its hottest year on record, and the northeast pushed record warm temperatures for August. “Record warmth was observed across much of South America and parts of Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and Asia,” NOAA said.
