Scientists from the University of Oxford said that If the trends of the first half of this month continue, it will beat the previous temperature record from July 2017.

This follows the warmest-ever June: the average global temperature in June was 1.71 ºF above the 20th-century average of 59.9 degrees, making it the hottest June in the 140-year record, according to scientists to NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information.

Nine of the 10 hottest Junes have occurred since 2010 and, according to data, the first six months of this year indicates this year has a 99.9% chance of entering the top five.

In response to the new numbers, Michael Mann, the director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University, tweeted: “This is significant. But stay tuned for July numbers. July is the warmest month of the year globally. If this July turns out to be the warmest July (it has a good shot at it), it will be the warmest month we have measured on Earth.”

Concerns about rising temperatures and their impact on health are growing. Thus, the Red Cross launched a new Heatwave Guide to help urban planners and city authorities reduce the risks, which are particularly great for the elderly, very young children, pregnant women and people who are socially isolated.
