الحرارة في أستراليا تعادل أكثر أيامها سخونة منذ بدء التسجيل

By Jordi Bou

January 13, 2022 - عادلت الحرارة في أستراليا أكثر أيام البلاد سخونة على الإطلاق بعد أن شهدت بلدة أونسلو الواقعة على الساحل الغربي ارتفاعاً في الحرارة بلغ °50.7 درجة مئوية.

The previous hottest day in Australian history was in Jan 2, 1960, when temperatures in Oodnadatta Airport in South Australia also hit 50.7.

In Roebourne and Mardie, temperatures hit 50.5 degrees about midday, both tied with the the second-hottest day in Australian records.

The record-breaking heat comes just days after a report from the EU's satellite system confirmed that the past seven years have been the hottest on record.

Heatwaves are becoming more likely and more extreme because of human-induced climate change.
