Scientists warn the world will have more extreme heat. Experts from the EU’s Earth Observation Programme analysed temperatures from satellites, weather stations and other databases. Their figures indicated a high likelihood of more extreme temperatures. Last month was the second warmest June on record for Europe. There were heatwaves over western North America. Many high temperature records were broken in Canada and the USA.

UK meteorologists said we have to get used to more record high temperatures. They said many regions are experiencing heatwaves. They added that records are being broken by larger margins. They reported that Canada’s recent “heat dome” weather event was an example “not just of extreme temperatures, but of extraordinarily extreme temperatures.” The scientists warned of a warmer world with more droughts and heat-related deaths.
