July 2023 was the hottest month on record since 1880

The effects of global warming are increasingly evident on the planet and NASA was able to confirm this by revealing that July 2023 has been the hottest month on record since 1880.

Researchers at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) conducted an analysis of all records and determined that 2023 continues to set new temperature records.

In this way, the data shows that the seventh month of 2023 was 1.1 degrees Celsius warmer than the average between 1951 and 1980.

“NASA data confirms what billions of people around the world have felt: July 2023 temperatures made it the hottest month on record,” said Bill Nelson, NASA Administrator.

De acuerdo con el funcionario, este tipo de eventos son una clara muestra de los efectos del cambio climático y es un llamado de alerta para que la humanidad actúe antes de que sea tarde.


Some regions of South America, North America, North Africa, Europe and the Antarctic Peninsula have been experiencing considerable increases in temperature and even some heat waves.

The mercury from the thermometers continue to mark record temperatures; at the same time that millions of people have been exposed to extreme thermal conditions that have caused the death of several citizens.

In this way, what was recorded in July shows that human activities continue to drive the increase in greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.

All of this meant that July 2023 has broken all records and has become the hottest month since 1880. In addition, the five hottest Julys in history have been recorded in the last five years.

«This July was not only warmer than any previous July, it was the warmest month in our record, which goes back to 1880. The science is clear, this is not normal,» said Gavin Schmidt, director of GISS.
