Copernicus: June 2024 was the hottest month on record

Greenhouse gas emissions continue to drive global temperatures to new records


New global heat record in June 2024

The European Copernicus Observatory has announced that June 2024 was the hottest month on record, surpassing the previous record set last year. This increase in temperatures is attributed to the ongoing influence of greenhouse gas emissions on the global climate.


Effects of greenhouse gas emissions

The impact of greenhouse gas emissions is evident in the trend of global temperatures. Between July 2023 and June 2024, the planet’s average temperature was 1.64°C higher than the pre-industrial average (1850-1900). This highlights the urgency of addressing climate change and reducing emissions.

Heatwaves around the world

June 2024 saw significant heatwaves in various parts of the world, including Mexico, China, and Saudi Arabia. This month also marked the thirteenth consecutive month of record-high temperatures, underscoring a worrying trend that requires immediate global action.
