Get used to seeing this headline. On Monday, July 3. the world passed 17,01 degrees global average temperature, surpassing the August 2016 record of 16.92C. Tuesday, it climbed to 17,18, and Wednesday also leveled on 17,18. Thursday 17,23. Scientists lamented the climate crisis, accelerated by the El Niño weather pattern, the latest of which the United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization (WMO) warned this week had begun. The last major El Niño was in 2016- the hottest year on record – until now.
Following the hottest day on record, Rishi decides to cancel climate and biodiversity funding. Could we get any clearer sign that they really don’t care about anyone (apart from their cronies)? https://t.co/W2X4stPQcr pic.twitter.com/c7dsiLZ4N5

Southern Hemisphere is completely off the chart
Daily Sea Surface Temperature (even more scary as the sea functions as a magazine for heat and might pass a threshold or tipping point)
This vividly illustrates the temperature spike in the Main Development Region of the Atlantic in 2023. Sea surface temps really began to increase in April. The gray shading is the 90% of historic record. 1/ pic.twitter.com/Yo9ULWGYyv

Global Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly keeps rapidly breaking new records.
We need to seriously consider the possibility that this warming spike will be worse than the 1997 and 2015 Super El Niños.
This will turn into record atmospheric heat soon. pic.twitter.com/U4gE18GXCn
