Apollo News Snippets – October 2022

The NOAA extreme weather map for August 2022 shows below average sea ice extents in both the Arctic and Antarctic Seas. Spain had its warmest August on record, as well as its warmest month since 1961. August also saw the birth of Hurricane Bonnie, which swept the East Pacific.

  • The August 2022 NOAA global climate report is out and, naturally, it was warm! The August 2022 average global surface temperature was the sixth-warmest since 1880, coming in at 1.62°F (0.90°C) above the 20th Century average of 60.1°F (15.6°C). In case you’re curious, the top ten warmest Augusts on record have all occurred since 2009. To top it off, the sea ice extents both came in below the 1981-2010 averages, with the Arctic at 16.8% and the Antarctic at 4.2% below average. Global warming is real, folks!
