According to data released by the Copernicus Climate Change Service, June 2019 was the hottest June on record, with global-average temperatures about 0.1°C (0.18°F) higher than the previous record for that month, in 2016.

While climatologists say that it is difficult to attribute the heat spike directly to climate change, “such extreme weather events are expected to become more common as the planet continues to warm under increasing greenhouse gas concentrations.” Adds Jean-Noël Thépaut, head of the Copernicus Climate Change Service, “Although this was exceptional, we are likely to see more of these events in the future due to climate change.”

Happy July 4th.
