Auch der Juni war der heißeste Juni seit Aufzeichnung der Wetterdaten, der vierzehnte monatliche Hitze-Rekord in Folge. Während man die vergangenen Hitze-Rekorde auf ElNiño zurückführen konnte, kann man das bei diesem Superjuni nun laut NASA nicht mehr. Yay! 😎
According to two US agencies – Nasa and Noaa – June 2016 was 0.9C hotter than the average for the 20th century, and the hottest June in the record which goes back to 1880. It broke the previous record, set in 2015, by 0.02C.
The 14-month streak of record-breaking temperatures was the longest in the 137-year record. And it has been 40 years since the world saw a June that was below the 20th century average.
The string of record-breaking monthly temperatures began in April 2015, and was pushed along by a powerful El Niño, where a splurge of warm water spreads across the Pacific Ocean. But the effects of El Niño have receded, and the effects of global warming are clear, said Nasa’s Gavin Schmidt.
