    See above. Notice that the North Atlantic and the Moscow Oblast were much colder than normal. Moscow's highs went down into the upper 60s. On the other hand, notice huge ares of the Earth with much higher than normal temperatures, and many large areas with record high temperatures.

    People who confuse weather and climate, never figure this out.

    And it's official:

    July 2019 has replaced July 2016 as the hottest month on record, with meteorologists saying that global temperatures marginally exceeded the previous record.
    The European Union's Copernicus Climate Change Programme, which analyzes temperature data from around the planet, said that July was around 0.56 °C warmer than the global average temperature between 1981-2010.
    That's slightly hotter than July 2016, when the world was in the throes of one of the strongest El Niño events on record.

    El Niño events are characterized by warming of the ocean waters in the Pacific Ocean and have a pronounced warming effect on the Earth's average temperature.
    Though there was a weak El Niño in place during the first part of 2019, it is transitioning to a more neutral phase, making the extreme July temperatures even more alarming.

    If things continue as they are this year, the last five years will be the hottest five years of global temperatures on record.

    There are always variations. Here's how it looked globally in July:

    Climate is really changing. Yesterday saw weather report and was surprised. In the south of Spain it is +47C and in Moscow in the middle of summer it is +13C... how is it even possible?! My friend who is from Russia decided to buy property in Athens as he is tired of living in a cold country and now it is even cold during summer.

    I can remember the first oil shock, when Arab countries stopped shipments to the U.S. Gasoline prices shot up, long lines at the pumps, etc.

    And people started carpooling, honking and shouting at people going over 55, and so on. In a genuine crisis, we still pull together. Hope we never lose that.

    Well, we aren't all going to die. Some people are, over stronger storms, droughts, etc. On the other hand, there will be winners and losers. Because rising temps have interfered with dry winds moving out of Asian highlands into northern Africa, it's less arid now.

    The Sahara is retreating, and the Sahel is greener. On the other hand, the American West is getting drier and warmer.

    Things will change. Historically, climate changes bring on upheavals in societies, migrations, and warfare. But maybe not this time. Technology may still blunt the worst of it.

    At least, I hope so.
