Chart of the week
We had the hottest June on record. This graph indeed shows an acceleration of the temperature drift in the air at the surface of the globe in June 2023.
The anomaly or deviation from the average observed between 1991 and 2020 is of an unprecedented magnitude of more than half a degree Celsius. It far exceeds the previous record of June 2019. Hottest temperature have been recorded in Europe and in particular in Ireland, the United Kingdom, Belgium and the Netherlands. They were significatly warmer in France and in parts of Canada, the United States, Mexico, Asia and Australia.
The trend rise in temperatures continued at the beginning of July with a historic high on July 3.
