Recorded this summer, hundreds of temperature records around the world

Today for anybody not a secret that July 2019 was the hottest month in the entire history of observations. According to the analysis of temperature records, conducted by researchers from the California Institute of Berkeley climate in the Northern hemisphere, temperature records were broken in 29 countries from 1 may to 30 August. A third of all high temperatures occurred in Germany, France and the Netherlands. The researchers came to the conclusion that in the summer of 2019 in the Northern hemisphere, there were about 1200 the hottest places.

During the analysis the researchers used data from weather stations in the Northern hemisphere. All weather stations were observed for at least 40 years. Some of the data that were used by the specialists, has not been presented for formal consideration by the meteorological agencies. Verification is needed to verify the correctness of measurements obtained.

Heat wave in Europe in June and July identified a number of local and national records. So, France has set a record temperature of 46°C, while the UK, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands also announced new temperature highs. By the way, in St. Petersburg in September also set a temperature record at 23°C on 19 September. One of the authors of the study Dr. Roberto Kind, reported that in the summer of 2019 in Europe was marked by a very large number of record high temperatures. In some European countries the history of weather observations more than 150 years. Also, the US has beaten more than 30 temperature records for the entire history of observations. In Japan, where 11 people died as a result of the summer heat, it was found 10 records.

In total, the summer of 2019 319 set temperature records. In the past, such temperature was recorded in 2003 and 2010. According to Dr. Rode, the increase in the number of record high temperatures is part of a long-term trend of global warming. In the last few years of 5% or more of the weather stations recorded new temperature records. The researchers note that due to climate change in the future new records will be set every year in different places of the planet.

July 2019 was the warmest month in the world

Around the world in July this year was a little warmer than usual — 0.04 degrees Celsius — compared to the previous hottest month on record — July 2016. A new July record followed the world record for June that was confirmed by the data of several meteorological agencies.

Scientists say that such a change in temperature — this is the latest sign that our planet is experiencing unprecedented warming. The researchers reported that scorching July heatthat struck Europe, has become more intense as a result of anthropogenic climate change. According to the analysis, climate change impact on temperature rise in the UK, France and the Netherlands on average from 1.5 to 3C. “In July 2019, the heat was so strong in continental Western Europe that the observed magnitude would be extremely unlikely without climate change,” — says Dr. friedericke Otto, acting Director of the environmental change Institute at Oxford University, and one of the authors of the study.
