The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s latest report—released in April of 2022—warned that greenhouse gas emissions need to peak by 2025 if there is any hope of meeting the Paris Agreement’s goal of capping global warming close to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit).

The climate is changing, and nothing will be spared from its effects: No acre of nature, no human, and no animal is completely insulated from the changes that will take place over the next century. These changes won’t affect every area equally, and that’s true between different states. But 33 states had their hottest overall years after 2010 (data for Hawaii and Alaska wasn’t available), with 2012 representing the hottest year for many. Though the amount of warming—a few degrees at most—may seem inconsequential, it’s important to note that past ice ages were caused by just a few degrees of cooling. Should humans continue to follow this current trajectory, the warming of Earth will have devastating worldwide effects without significant international efforts to stop it.

Stacker compiled data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for Environmental Information to detail the temperature changes over 120 years across every state except Alaska and Hawaii, where data was not available. Each temperature is compared to the 1901-2000 average. Winter in this story refers to December of the preceding year through February of the current year (e.g., in 1919, winter is December 1918 to February 1919), while summer refers to June through August of each year. All temperatures are listed in Fahrenheit.
