Last summer was Europe’s hottest ever

New data shows that last summer was Europe’s hottest ever recorded.

It was also the continent’s second-hottest year, surpassing only 2020, and slightly warmer than 2019, 2015, and 2014, according to the Copernicus Climate Change Service of the European Union.

Last year was also the hottest ever for many countries in Europe, which included the UK and Ireland.

It was also the third-warmest season on record.

It was the fifth-warmest year ever recorded, with an average temperature of 0.3C higher than the average 1991-2020, or 1.2C more than pre-industrial levels.

As the world sees the effects of climate changes, the past eight years have been some of the warmest ever recorded.

These figures are consistent with other global data that shows European temperatures have increased more than twice the average global temperature over the past thirty years. They also have the highest rate for global warming of any continent.

Last year, northern Europe and western Europe were afflicted by high temperatures and heatwaves. This was accompanied with low precipitation. This led to widespread droughts in the southern and central regions of Europe.

Wildfires were at an unusually high level in southwestern Europe, particularly in France and Spain. This pushed the EU’s emissions to the highest levels in 15-years for both the UK and the EU.

“Another year with extreme climate conditions”

Samantha Burgess is the Copernicus Climate Change Service’s deputy director. She said that “2022 was another year of extreme climate conditions across Europe and worldwide.

These events show that the disastrous effects of global warming are already being felt.

“The C3S 2022 climate highlights are clear evidence that society must urgently reduce carbon emissions as well as adapt quickly to changing climate conditions to avoid the worst.”

Reports also revealed that greenhouse gases are still building up in the atmosphere. Concentrations of carbon dioxide have increased by approximately 2.1 parts per Million, which is similar to recent years.

Concentrations of methane rose by 12 parts per million – more than the average, but less than the record highs recorded in the past two years.
