The Summer Of 2021 Was The Hottest Summer On Record

NOAA found that the average temperature of meteorological summer - June, July, and August - was 2.6°F (1.45°C) above the 20th century average, a troubling sign as global temperatures continue to increase faster than previously thought.

All seven of the warmest years on record have been the last seven years, and 19 of the 20 warmest years have occurred since 2000. More than 18% of the contiguous U.S. experienced record heat this summer, and several states, including California, Nevada, Utah, and Oregon had their hottest temperatures on record.

No state reported temperatures that fell below average. The record heat coincided with extreme weather across the country, including extreme heat, wildfires, drought, and flooding. (CNN, Gizmodo, LA Times $, The Hill, New York Times $, Washington Post $; Climate Signals background: Extreme heat and heatwaves, 2021 Western wildfire season, Drought, Extreme precipitation increase, 2021 Atlantic hurricane season)

China Ports Brace For Super Typhoon Chanthu

SNIPPETS:

Two of China’s main ports are preparing for the arrival of Super Typhoon Chanthu, which was dumping heavy rain on the north of the Philippines Friday as it headed toward Taiwan and the Chinese coast.

China’s Maritime Safety Administration has issued a warning for Fujian province, where Xiamen Port is located, asking ships to adjust navigation plans and leave typhoon-affected waters.

While it’s no longer classed as a super typhoon, Chanthu remains formidable and is the equivalent of a category 4 hurricane, Accuweather said Thursday. It was north of the main Philippine island of Luzon and moving northwestward, according to the Philippine government weather bureau, with maximum winds of 130 knots (240 kilometers per hour) and gusts up to 160 knots, the U.S. Joint Typhoon Warning Center said.

Historic Black Louisiana Town Forgotten After Being Devastated By Hurricane Ida 

Just beyond Highway 23, a mere 30 miles south of New Orleans, lies the small town of Ironton, Louisiana. After Hurricane Ida pummeled the area, the town's approximately 52 Black families are trying to rebuild their lives. Again.

The residents of Ironton have had to rebuild their lives in 2005, after Hurricane Katrina, and in 2012, after Hurricane Issac. Most of the homes are completely unlivable, with no electricity or running water. Ida's 12-foot storm surge dislodged coffins and tombs, scattering them around the town. "I was born and raised here," Wilkie Declouet, a former law enforcement officer, and lifelong resident of Ironton, who posted photos of coffins and tombs on social media, told DeSmog. "This is in my blood. So I will give it one more try."

The residents of Ironton want the federal government to prioritize a renewed levee system and assistance with rebuilding. (DeSmog; Climate Signals background: 2021 Atlantic hurricane season)
