The Independent reports:
June was the hottest month ever recorded on Earth, the EU’s satellite agency has announced. Data provided by the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), implemented by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts on behalf of the EU, showed that the global-average temperature for June 2019 was the highest on record for the month.
The data showed European-average temperatures for June 2019 were more than 2C above normal and temperatures were 6-10C above normal over most of France, Germany and northern Spain during the final days of the month, according to C3S.
We just experienced *the hottest month ever recorded on Planet Earth.*
Unless we act drastically now, it’s only going to get worse.
What will that mean for our food, water, shelter, safety?

#UPDATE The record-breaking heatwave that gripped France last week was made at least five times more likely by climate change, scientists said as other data showed that last month was the hottest June worldwide in history https://t.co/oBb6yNd5S0 pic.twitter.com/0yKI1qvcLB

Wow, June 2019 was the hottest on record and greater than 2°C above the 1981-2010 climate average in Europe. The average global temperature was also the highest on record.
