July 2019 equals July 2016 as the warmest month for which data is available, and it may even be exceeding it and it becomes the hottest month ever observed, according to new data from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the service of Copernicus related to climate change. This new record comes after registering the warmest June month recorded.
WMO is responsible for integrating data from the Copernicus service on climate change into the United Nations system, which is managed by the European Center for Medium-Term Weather Forecasts (CEPMPM). So far, July 2016 was the warmest month for which data were available, but the new figures indicate that, if you take into account the first 29 days of the month, July 2019 has been as warm as July 2016 and even its temperature may end up being slightly higher.
"It has always been hot in summer, but these temperatures were not recorded when we were young, or when our grandparents were," said the Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres, when he released the data in New York.
"Everything indicates that the period from 2015 to 2019 will be the warmest five-year period for which data is available. Only this year, temperature records have been pulverized from New Delhi to Anchorage, from Paris to Santiago, from Adelaide to the Arctic circle If we do nothing to curb climate change now, those extreme weather events will be the tip of the iceberg. And, in addition, the iceberg is also melting at high speed, "Guterres explained.
"We must prevent an irreversible climatic alteration. It is the battle of our lives, to fight for our lives. And it is a battle that we can and must win." WMO recalls that in the last week of July the heat has been exceptional throughout the world. On July 25, new temperature records were recorded in Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
