Scientists have warned that the world will experience more extreme heat. Experts from Copernicus, the EU's Earth Observation Programme, analysed world temperatures from satellites, weather stations and other databases around the globe. They said their figures indicated a high likelihood of an increase in extreme temperatures. They said it was the second warmest June on record for Europe and that there were heatwaves over western North America. Many high temperature records were broken in areas of Canada and the USA.

Meteorologists in the UK said: "We are getting used to record high temperatures being recorded somewhere around the world every year now." They said many regions are experiencing more heatwaves. They added that high temperature records are being broken by worryingly larger margins. They reported that Canada's recent "heat dome" weather event was an example "not just of extreme temperatures, but of extraordinarily extreme temperatures." The scientists warned that an increasingly warmer world would result in more droughts and heat-related deaths.
