NASA experts report that the global average temperature was 0.93 Celsius degrees higher than the norm in June. So last month officially went down as the hottest June in history.
According to experts, the highest anomalies in temperature were recorded in Western Europe. Most of these anomalies occurred in France: 13 regions in the country showed higher temperatures than before. For example, temperatures in the city of Gallargues-le-Montueux peaked at 45.9 degrees Celsius.
The United States had their fair share of climatic shocks: an anomalous heat covered the entire territory from the Great Plains to the East Coast. According to meteorologists, July will also bring some surprises to the States.
This year brought us a hot summer and spring, as average global temperatures in May surpassed all recorded averages for the past three years. Each year is hotter than the last. Experts at The Washington Post predict that 2019 might go down in history as one of the top three hottest years ever recorded. We are clearly dealing with some dangerous trends here.
