It was 7 years ago this month that Faith, South Dakota set the state’s highest recorded air temperature reaching a sweltering 120 degrees. What about the rest of the nation? Are we experiencing a steady increase in global warming?

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, 2012 was the warmest year on record for the contiguous United States.

This month also marked the 100th anniversary of the hottest temperature ever recorded on the surface of the earth. It reached 134 degrees F. at appropriately named Furnace Creek, Calif. on July 10, 1913.

The infographic below by Jan Diehm for the Huffington Post shows records set by states and startling warming trends.
