Why the sudden burst of broken temperature records scares scientists.


It was Monday. Earth’s hottest day in at least 125,000 years – And Tuesday was hot.

The Washington Post reported “Uncharted territory,” as the director of the European Copernicus Climate Change Service calls it.

Not only are records being broken, but there are huge margins where conditions exceed previous extremes, scientists say. In areas of the North Atlantic, temperatures are running up to 9 degrees Fahrenheit above normal. It’s the hottest they’ve seen in over 170 years.. The warmer water helped in northwestern Europe; including the United KingdomHave the hottest June on record.

New data published Thursday by the Copernicus Center showed global temperatures rose 0.53 degrees Celsius (0.95 degrees Fahrenheit) in June from the 1991-2020 average. 17 percent below the 1991-2020 average, Copernicus said. The previous record, set a year ago, was 9 percent below the average.

The planet is getting more and more flirtatious. A measure of global warming that policymakers want to avoid – 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels. According to Copernicus, the whole month averaged 1.36 degrees above the 1850-1900 temperature, but at times, it was exceeded this year.
