Die Welt sieht in Aufzeichnungen den heißesten Tag der Erde

By Ninian Carter

July 5, 2023 - Die Durchschnittstemperatur der Welt hat ein neues Hoch erreicht, 17,01C am 3. Juli, stieg aber sofort am nächsten Tag noch höher.

Tuesday, July 4, 2023, was the hottest day ever recorded globally, according the U.S. National Centers for Environmental Prediction, a division of NOAA, utilising data from University of Maine scientists at the Climate Reanalyzer project.

The average global temperature reached 17.18°C (62.92°F), surpassing a record set a day earlier when the mercury topped out at 17.01°C (62.62°F) – beating the August 2016 record of 16.92°C (62.46°F).

Enduring heatwaves have been affecting the southern U.S., Africa and China – creating brutal conditions for millions of people around the world. Even Antarctica, which is in its winter period, broke its July temperature record with a high 8.7°C (47.6°F).

Scientists believe human-caused climate change, combined with an emerging El Niño weather pattern, are to blame for the rise.
