Arctic Records Its Hottest Temperature Ever

Arctic Records Its

Hottest Temperature Ever According to CBS News, Verkhoyansk in Siberia reached 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit on Saturday,

32 degrees above its normal high. Parts of Siberia have been warming up since January, with western Siberia averaging 10 degrees above normal for the whole month of May. The average heat in Russia from January

to May now reflects what was expected

to be normal by the year 2100. The extreme changes are due in

part to natural weather patterns

and human-caused climate change. Scientists have said that the

only way to slow the impact

of climate change is to stop

burning fossil fuels.
