July world’s hottest month on record, scientists confirm

Several global climate records fell last month, EU scientists said Tuesday, confirming July as the world’s hottest month in recorded history.

The bloc’s Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) said that July’s global average temperature of 16.95 degrees Celsius was well above the previous 16.63C record set in 2019. At the same time, ocean temperatures hit a new high.

Last month also saw the world’s hottest day: Global temperatures on July 6 reached 17.08C — and every day between July 3 and July 31 smashed the previous 16.80C record set in August 2016.
