We all know that Earth is old, really really old. Over four and a half billion years old. It’s hard to put into perspective just how old it is.Well, Business Insider has done a pretty..
The July average temperature across global land and ocean surfaces was 1.46°F (0.81°C) above the 20th century average. As July is climatologically the warmest month for the year, this was also the all-time highest monthly temperature..
