Earth’s worst heat waves of recent decades didn’t happen when you think they did

Despite the impact of climate change on Earth, the worst heat waves on our planet aren’t happening now. They actually occurred 40 years ago, a new study has found.

The summer of 2021 may have brought the highest recorded temperatures to swaths of the American Northwest. When compared to local averages, however, this devastating heat wave loses out to hot spells that took place about 40 years ago in other parts of Earth, according to a review by researchers from the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom.
