It has never been as hot as this June.

It has never been as hot as this June.

The European Union's Copernicus Climate Change Monitoring Service said Monday that June was also warmer than any previous June since records began, and the global average temperature hit a record high for the 13th month in a row.

The global average in June was 1.5 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial level.

They added in the report, highlighting that this is the twelfth consecutive month in which the monthly global average temperature has been 1.5 degrees Celsius or more.

The 2015 Paris Climate Conference set a goal of limiting the increase in global average temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels.

From July 2023 to June 2024, global temperatures exceeded pre-industrial levels by 1.64 degrees Celsius, according to Copernicus.

Meanwhile, EU climate scientists have noted that while the 13-month heat record is “unusual”, a similar run of global heat was recorded between 2015 and 2016.

The average temperature in Europe in June was 1.57°C higher than the average June temperature between 1991 and 2020. This June is the second warmest June on the continent since records began.

The report noted that temperatures were particularly extreme in southeastern Europe and Turkey, while temperatures were close to or below average in western Europe, Iceland and northwestern Russia.

Meanwhile, in Iceland, in central Europe and in large areas of the southwestern part of the continent, June this year brought more than average rainfall, and in Germany, Italy, France and Switzerland severe flooding occurred.

Outside Europe, June was particularly warm in Canada, the western United States, Mexico, Brazil, northern Siberia, the Middle East, North Africa and West Antarctica, the report said.

These developments clearly point to the effects of climate change, and new records are inevitable if greenhouse gas emissions do not fall, said Carlo Buontempo, director of Copernicus. hirado.hu.
