Did you think that 2020 was pretty hot? It turns out that it was pretty much tied with 2016 for the hottest year on record. According to the New York Times, some places felt the heatwave more than others.
“…the numbers are only a small part of the story. As climate scientists have predicted, the world is seeing an increase in heat waves, storms and other extreme weather as the planet warms, and in disasters like droughts, floods and wildfires that result. Last year offered no respite, with record fires in Australia and California, and severe drought in central South America and the American Southwest.”
The NYT created a data visualization tool so that you could see the heat increase geographical spread.
