Is it us or is it getting hotter in here? NASA announced Monday that this past August and July tied for the hottest months in recorded history.

You see those two little points at the top of the graph? They mean that the world has never experienced average temperatures so high since we started recording such things back in the days of Jesse James.

And, of course, this continues an ongoing trend: The past 11 consecutive months have set new global records for high temperatures.

Check back in next month for “Yep, Still Hot: September Edition.”
