“July is typically the warmest month of the year in the world, but July 2021 has overtaken itself as the hottest July and the hottest month ever,” said Rick Spinrad, CEO of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). “This new record is in addition to the worrying and erosive trajectory that climate change is preparing for the Earth.” So it is very likely that 2021 will be one of the ten warmest years ever recorded.

At the start of the week, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change presented the consequences of man-made global warming more acutely than ever in a new report.

Because of rising temperatures, people will have to prepare for more extreme weather events such as floods and heat waves. Recently, there have been a number of disasters such as floods in Germany and extreme heat waves in southeastern Europe and western Canada. (dpa)
