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

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