June was world’s hottest on record, EU scientists say


Last month was the hottest June globally on record, with abnormally high temperatures recorded on both land and sea, the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service said on Thursday, Report informs, citing Reuters.

Last month smashed through the previous temperature record for the month of June, which was in 2019, by a substantial margin, Copernicus said.

Globally, June was just over 0.5 C above the average temperature for the same month in 1991–2020, Copernicus said, as climate change pushes global temperatures to new records and short-term weather patterns also drive temperature movements.
