AP reports global temperature drop citing Climate Reanalyzer 

The Associated Press cited the University of Maine Climate Change Institute’s Climate Reanalyzer in reporting how Tuesday, Aug. 8 was the first day since July 2 in which the global average temperature fell below the record-breaking 16.92 degrees Celsius. According to AP, that means “that Earth just spent 36 days straight above the previous hottest day on record.” ABC News, The Washington Post, The Hill, The Independent and many other news outlets share the AP report.
