Year 2016 records the hottest June ever in history

July 20, 2016 5:36 PM |

Hottest JuneThere seems no break from the saga of record-breaking global temperatures. Last month was once again reported to be the hottest June ever and the 14th straight month to break global heat records.

According to the US agencies, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), June 2016 was 0.9°C hotter than the 20th century average temperature. Moreover, it is the hottest June since records began, 137 years back, in 1880.

For the last 40 years, the world has not seen a June that was below the 20th century average temperature of 15.5°C.

Most scientists across the world attribute the increase in temperatures to greenhouse gas emissions. They also say climate change is at least partially to blame for a number of environmental disasters around the world.

Seems like the Earth is getting hotter by the day. After 2015 being the warmest year on record, 2016 is likely to take its position.
