Climate scientists have warned that many parts of world will experience more extreme heat. experts are from Copernicus, European Union's Earth Observation Programme. Its meteorologists analysed world temperatures from satellites, aircraft, weather stations and other databases from around world. The scientists reported that their figures indicated high likelihood of escalation in extreme temperatures. They said: "It was second warmest June on record for Europe....Heatwave conditions persisted over western North America, where many temperature records were broken. Arctic Siberia also experienced high temperatures."

Professor Peter Stott of UK's Meteorological Office said: "We are getting used to record high temperatures being recorded somewhere around world every year now." He added that his primary concern was not fact that regions are experiencing more heatwaves, but that record high temperatures are increasingly being broken by such large margins. Talking about Canada's recent "heat dome" weather event, professor Stott said: "It is telling us that changes in average climate are leading to rapid escalation not just of extreme temperatures, but of extraordinarily extreme temperatures." scientists warned that warming world would mean more droughts and heat-related deaths.
