This year’s November was the sixth month in a row that broke the temperature record, and this year will also be the warmest on record. This was announced today by the European Union’s Copernicus meteorological service.
According to its data, the eleventh month of the year surpassed the warmest November of 2020 by 0.32 degrees Celsius. The period from January to November was 0.13 degrees Celsius warmer than the previous record year.
The average November temperature at the earth’s surface was 14.22 degrees Celsius, which is 0.85 degrees higher than the average of the last three decades from 1991 to 2020. According to meteorologists from the Union service, it is already very unlikely that temperatures will drop so much in December so that this year does not become the warmest year.
“The last six months were really shocking. Scientists are already running out of adjectives to describe it,” said Samantha Burgess, deputy chief of the Climate Change Service.
