June breaks record as hottest ever in history setting a new global benchmark. According to the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service, this extraordinary heatwave marks the 13th consecutive month of record-breaking temperatures, underscoring the relentless progression of climate change. The average global temperature in June soared to unprecedented levels, surpassing previous records and highlighting the urgent need for comprehensive climate action.

This record-breaking heat is not confined to land alone. June 2024 also saw the highest-ever recorded sea surface temperatures. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported that the global ocean surface temperature anomaly was the highest in their climate record, contributing to the alarming rate of polar ice melt. Antarctic sea ice coverage reached a historic low, continuing a trend that poses severe implications for global sea levels and ecosystems. The decline in sea ice is a clear indicator of the accelerating impacts of global warming, affecting weather patterns and marine life.

The unprecedented temperatures have sparked a renewed call for action among global leaders and environmental organizations. U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres emphasized the urgent need for robust climate policies to mitigate further damage. Scientists warn that the persistence of El Niño conditions could sustain high temperatures in the coming months, potentially making 2024 one of the hottest years on record.

The ongoing heat wave across continents, from the United States to Southern Europe and China, highlights how severe weather events are becoming more frequent and intense and that they are now 50 times more likely as a result of climate change.

Overall, June breaks record as hottest ever in history, which is a stark reminder of the accelerating pace of climate change and its pervasive impacts. As global temperatures continue to rise, the urgency for effective climate solutions becomes ever more critical. The international community must intensify efforts to curb GHG emissions and implement sustainable practices to safeguard the planet for future generations.
