Experts say climate change contributed to record-breaking temperatures across Europe

June was the hottest month ever recorded on Earth, the EU's satellite agency has announced.

Data provided by the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), implemented by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts on behalf of the EU, showed that the global-average temperature for June 2019 was the highest on record for the month.

The data showed European-average ​temperatures for June 2019 were more than 2C above normal and temperatures were 6-10C above normal over most of France, Germany and northern Spain during the final days of the month, according to C3S.

Global-average temperature was about 0.1C higher than during the previous warmest June, in 2016.

Experts have said climate change made last week's record-breaking European heatwave at least five times as likely to happen, according to recent analysis.

I've altered the title from the original, because it was the hottest ever June, not the hottest ever month.

Texas, so far, has had a mild summer. We’re hot, around 37 C. However, that’s typical. Hot summers in Texas can be 43 to 45 C.

Guadalajara in Mexico had more than 1 meter of hail fall a day or two ago. People were walking on the ice.

It has been an odd year. However, I’m happy it isn’t as hot as other years.

Hotter than last year June? Wow. I guess last year saw a more sustained high temperature rather than actually recording the highest temperature in Europe.


I think the heatwave came a little later last year. It was like 6 weeks total but only began on the last week of June, so this year's June ended up warmer overall.

28th June was literally the hottest day in France ever recorded.

Saturday the 29th was a scorcher, but from where I've been (nr Manchester and then Nottingham), the rest of the month was pretty crap. Not cold, just crap.

Europe picking up the slack as usual :)


It's been alright where I am. Never seem to get the extremes when you live in the middle of the sea.

Yeah june is very hot month. In pakistan almost temperature 50○. Many peoples died from heat. Ac not working. I hate summer. I love winters. Elephant looks so good and enjoying cold water.

No wonder in the month of June this last month, I get to feel more heat than before. But I don't like that notice it as I just think it is a change in weathee

Really you are right as much as no month is hot that june. I saw in social media in many country's car's 🚙 glass indicator and bumper melted. There is a very hot heat in June. All this has happened due to the unprofessional trees and not growing the new trees.

Errm, I think that data is for Colder climate, tropical climates like Here in Nigeria, February towards Early April was damn hot, before the raining season started.

It's an average. Some places will be cooler than normal even while the global average is higher.

We are getting more extreme weather events. Even if it does not feel generally hotter this has to be a warning sign. Just waiting for it to get worse before taking action is not an option. The other damage we are doing to the planet is more obvious with plastic in the oceans, toxic air in cities and habitat destruction being a few examples. The efforts of right wingers to remove regulation smack of influence of vested interests.
