North America experiences hottest June on record

World Today

North America has been through its hottest June on record.

That’s according to the European Union’s Earth observation program, Copernicus — which also found that last month was the second warmest June on record for Europe, and the fourth warmest June ever recorded worldwide.

Scientists point out that human-caused climate change has almost certainly played a pivotal role in the latest spike in temperatures worldwide and that even more extreme conditions could be expected.
