By Ninian Carter

July 5, 2023 - La temperatura promedio mundial alcanzó un nuevo máximo de
17,01°C el 3 de julio, e inmediatamente aumentó al día siguiente.

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.
