Global Boiling: July 2023 is the Hottest Month in 120,000 Years!
fit the bill: to be suitable or right for a particular purpose or situation
July 2023 was hotter than any month in the last 120,000 years. How do we know this? Scientists use ocean sediment, air trapped in polar ice, and coral reefs to compare historical temperatures. In July, the world’s average temperature was 16.95 degrees. The old record was 16.63 degrees in July 2019.
The United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres thinks the term global warming no longer fits the bill. He says, “The era of global boiling has arrived.”

Congrats, July 2023! You Were the Hottest Month in 120,000 Damn Years
