Today’s Earth Day, when we celebrate the birth of our planet, since the 22th of April of 1970. Then, laws about environment protection were enacted, the first one was named “Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species”.
Nevertheless, bad news on this day, when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), confirmed that march of 2016 was the hottest month ever since 1880 when the American agency started working.
In March, we record temperatures in parts of Brazil, east and middle of Africa, south Asia, and north and east of Australia. At the same time, an unusual cold was detected in the northeast of Canada, northeast of Africa and part of the south-middle of America.
The average temperatures of Earth and oceans was about 1,22 degrees centigrade higher to the average of 12,7 of the XX century, accordingly the last monthly report of the Agency. The temperature in march was 0,32 degrees higher than the same month last year. The previous ten months had record temperatures compared to other years.
2015 exceed every temperature average and was the hottest moth ever, although we could surely confirm that 2016 would record this statistic.
Today is the day to pause for thought about the protection we owe our planet which brings us home and life.
Happy 2016 Earth Day!
