The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently released a report showing that April marked the planet's 400th consecutive month with above-average temperatures.
This is a staggering milestone.
The authors of the government report did not mince words about the cause: "It's mainly due to anthropogenic (human-caused) warming. Climate change is real, and we will continue to see global temperatures increase in the future."
It is vital that news outlets alert the public to these findings and inform and engage their readers and viewers on the climate crisis.
Please help give this report the exposure is warrants.
