Record-Breaking Heat: June 2024 Marks Highest Temperatures in 13 Years

  • June 2024 recorded the highest temperatures since records began.
  • 13 consecutive months have set new temperature records.
  • Scientists predict 2024 could be the hottest year on record.

The European Union‘s Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) revealed that June 2024 was the hottest June ever recorded, continuing an alarming 13-month streak of record-breaking temperatures. This trend, driven by human-induced climate change and the El Niño phenomenon, suggests that 2024 may surpass 2023 as the hottest year in recorded history.

The unprecedented heat has already led to severe consequences globally. More than 1,000 people succumbed to the extreme heat during the haj pilgrimage last month, and New Delhi experienced a historically long and deadly heatwave.

Unprecedented Heatwave: June 2024 Breaks 13-Year Temperature Records

The latest data from the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) confirms that June 2024 was the hottest June on record. This marks the 13th consecutive month of record-breaking temperatures, indicating an alarming trend. According to C3S, these extreme temperatures result from a combination of human-induced climate change and the natural El Niño phenomenon, which has been particularly intense this year.

Zeke Hausfather from Berkeley Earth projects a 95% likelihood that 2024 will surpass 2023 as the warmest year since global temperature records began in the mid-1800s. This prediction underscores the severity of the ongoing climate crisis, driven primarily by greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels. Despite international efforts to curb emissions, global temperatures continue

As global temperatures continue to break records, the urgent need for decisive action on climate change becomes increasingly clear. The ongoing impact of human activities, combined with natural phenomena like El Niño, underscores the critical necessity to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and implement sustainable practices worldwide.

Friederike Otto, a climate scientist at Imperial College London’s Grantham Institute, said, “El Niño is a naturally occurring phenomenon that will always come and go. We can’t stop El Niño, but we can stop burning oil, gas, and coal.” This quote highlights the crucial distinction between natural climate variations and human-induced climate change, emphasizing the urgent need to reduce fossil fuel consumption to mitigate future temperature rises.
