March 2010: Hottest March on Record
from Wildlife Promise
The world’s combined global land and ocean surface temperature made last month the warmest March on record, according to NOAA. Taken separately, average ocean temperatures were the warmest for any March and the global land surface was the fourth warmest for any March on record. Additionally, the planet has seen the fourth warmest January – March period on record.
More evidence of warming — Arctic sea ice saw it the fifth-smallest March coverage since records began in 1979 & Antarctic sea ice has its eighth smallest March ice coverage on record. It’s just the latest evidence that we need climate action now.
