Believe it or not, you have just lived through the hottest summer ever recorded on Earth.

Summer of 2023 was Earth’s hottest since global records began in 1880
The site goes on to point out the painfully obvious:
“Summer 2023’s record-setting temperatures aren’t just a set of numbers – they result in dire real-world consequences.

We've had several other days, including one day in September that have etched themselves into the record book as the hottest days ever recorded in Shreveport.
