Average World Temperature
The average temperature of the earth has varied all throughout time. The earth is unique in the sense that there are extreme variations of temperatures all across the globe.
It cane be freezing in New York and be blazing hot in Florida. However, we have been fortunate to be at the right distance from the sun in our solar system to support life even with all the extreme temperature differences around the globe. Even with these wild extremes, you can get an average temperature of the earth and if you were to do this, you would see that the average temperature has been rising steadily (hence the concern over global warming in recent years).
The average temperature of the earth right now is around 13 degrees Celsius or around 55 degree Fahrenheit. The change in earth's temperature can be affected by things like the earth's orbit, air pollution, volcanic eruptions, or how intense the sun's activity is (see What Causes Climate Change).
If the world weather temperature continues to rise, we can expect to see a gradual change of how life functions on this planet. Living things including humans will have to learn to adapt and change as life has done throughout the millions of years of earth's history. Things like melting polar ice caps could raise water levels and flood low lying areas and even wipe some islands off the map.
So what were the hottest and coldest temperatures recorded on earth? Well for the hottest, you will have to go back to 1922 when a temperature of 57.8 degrees Celsius (136 F) in Al Aziziyah, Libya. For the coldest record, you will have to go back to 1983 at Vostak Station in Antarctica where a temperature of -89.2 Celsius (-128.6 F) was recorded.
Temperatures Around the World
So what are the temperatures around the world? Well you do have to consider the tilt of the earth and that while you may be experiencing Summer, someone else may be experiencing winter. The equator and the poles are probably the only places on earth where the temperature stays consistently cold or hot.
The North and South Poles do not get much direct sunlight while the regions around the equator get steady direct sunlight throughout the year. The cool times for these regions are during the rainy season however. Check out this cool widget below to find the temperature for your neck of the woods (Just click "change location" for your area):
