Hottest June ever in North America

Hottest June ever in North America

Parts of the United States and Canada have been hit by a massive heat wave in the past few weeks, leading to many wildfires. “These heat waves do not occur in a vacuum. They occur in a global, warmer climate environment, which makes their occurrence more likely,” said climate researcher Julian Nichols of Copernicus on Wednesday.

A new record was recorded for three consecutive days in June in the Canadian province of British Columbia. According to Copernicus, temperatures in the region in June were 1.2 degrees above the 1991 to 2020 average. For Europe, it was the second warmest June since records began, and with June 2018 it was the fourth warmest worldwide.
