Superlatives and climate change

Esta semana os presentamos una actividad elaborada por Isaac Begoña Ortiz, profesor de inglés de primaria en el colegio Montserrat. Un buen ejemplo de como introducir de forma transversal los contenidos ecosociales, en este caso el cambio climático.

May was hottest on Earth since records began
Average land and ocean surface temperature for May was highest ever, as 2014 shapes up to potentially be hottest year yet

May was the hottest ever globally, by combined ocean and land surface temperature records
Last month was the hottest May globally since records began in 1880, new figures show.
The record heat, combined with increasingly certain predictions of an El Niño, means experts are now speculating whether 2014 could become the hottest year on record.
Data published by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on Monday showed the average land and ocean surface temperature last month was 0.74C above the 20th century average of 14.8C, making it the highest on record.
Previously, the warmest May was 2010, followed by 2012, 1998 and 2013.
2010 holds the record for that period. April 2014 was also the hottest April ever by Noaa’s records.
There are two other main global temperature records in addition to Noaa’s, one kept by Nasa and the other by the Met Office’s Hadley Centre in the UK. The three are combined by the UN’s World Meteorological Organisation, which ranks 2010 as the warmest on record, and says that 13 of the 14 warmest years on record occurred in the 21st century.
