Last June (2017) was the third hottest in history, according to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency, quoted by the British newspaper The Guardian. Up to now, only June 2015 and 2016 were hotter.
The data also confirms the calculations that global warming has reached values not seen for at least 115,000 years, with some experts no longer believing that the process could be limited to 1.5 or even 2 degrees Celsius.
The surface temperature of the oceans and on land in June 2017 was 0.82 degrees above the average for 20 c., Which continued the practice of 41 consecutive months of June above this threshold. June 2016 still keeps the record by 0.92 degrees above the average for 20 cents, followed by June 2015 by 0.89 degrees.
The data of the agency is not exactly the same as NASA’s information, according to which June is the fourth hottest, before it was June 1998. On the basis of information from the space agency, scientists believe that 2017 will be the second hottest Ever after 2016.
