This year many Floridians were surprised to find that multiple times we had broken records for the hottest days during February and averaged hotter days then last year.

Over the course of February this year people would find that 2018 did have the hotter temperatures over February. This is found in in the average highs and the highs of the lows for each day. Averaging the number of highs between 2017 and 2018, 2018 had 53% of the highs. 2018 also held the hotter lows holding 64% of the hotter temperatures. In both scenarios there was similarities in both while the lows boasted the larger amount of the same temperatures vs the highs. Their percentage was 21%.

Based off of this, it is very visible that there is a increase in the overall hotter temperatures. If this increase in temperature were to persist for the years which follow, it would be very problematic for the environment of Florida. Winters would eventually dissipate causing issues like a increase in even more insect wildlife and push out other native species. Florida would also stop being a sub-tropical location to a completely tropical location closer to those seen by the equator.

Temperature increases like this shows a visible issue for other parts of the world as well. Northern parts of the world which typically have large amounts of ice, are melting since their temperatures are rising. The melted ice going into the ocean and more water into the sea means flooded coastal cities, this can already be seen in miami. This problem of increasing temperatures has only continued to be a difficulty with no real solution insight.
