Second hottest October ever recorded as global warming continues

Arctic Sea ice coverage shrinks to smallest size since 2007

                                

New data from the US government shows that Earth experienced the second-hottest October ever recorded, behind 2015, and that 2019 is on track for the second-hottest year on record.

According to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the average global land and ocean surface temperature for October 2019 was 1.76F above the 20th-century average. This value was only 0.11 of a degree short of the October temperature recorded in 2015.

Earth is continuing its melting trend with the Arctic Sea ice coverage shrinking to its smallest size yet for October since 2007.

The 10 warmest Octobers have occurred since 2003, with five occurring since 2015. October 2019 was also the 43rd consecutive October and the 418th consecutive month with temperatures above the 20th-century average.

The data also showed that Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Caribbean and the Hawaiian Islands region experienced temperatures that ranked among the three highest on record for October.

The world’s average sea-surface temperature ranked second-warmest ever recorded for the year to date, less than a 10th of a degree cooler than the record sea-surface temperature observed in 2016.

This year the world's annual climate conference will be held in Madrid, after Chile withdrew due to political unrest. Spain will host COP25 from December 2-13, 2019.
