June 2024 became the hottest month ever 61.9 crore Indians faced scorching heat

June Temperature Record: The heat that North India experienced last June will never be forgotten. People will remember this heat for years. ACs burst in high-rise buildings, a large number of people fell unconscious due to heatwave. The capital Delhi touched 52 degree temperature. Not only day, but also night heat wave prevailed and people kept suffering for many days. Now the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) has said that the global temperature is continuously breaking records and June 2024 has been recorded as the hottest month till date.

According to a report, Berkeley Earth research scientist JK Hausfather has predicted a 95 percent chance that 2024 will be the hottest year since the 1800s, when surface temperatures began to be recorded around the world. It has also surpassed the summer of 2023, when heatwaves wreaked havoc in European countries.

The rising temperature is showing its effect all over the world. Last month, the temperature was recorded above 45 degrees for several days in many cities of India. There was a huge jump in the night temperature as well. Due to this, many people lost their lives and the number of patients in hospitals increased.

More than 1,000 people who went on Hajj in Saudi Arabia died due to heat. People have also lost their lives in European countries due to rising temperatures. The worrying thing is that the efforts to reduce global emissions are not yielding much results. In the last 12 months, the world’s average temperature was 1.64 degrees Celsius higher than the pre-industrial average.

Many countries faced record-breaking heat and devastating floods and storms in June. According to an analysis by Climate Central, an independent group of US-based scientists, more than 60 percent of the world’s population faced extreme heat.

Climate Central said that 61.9 crore people in India, 57.9 crore in China, 23.1 crore in Indonesia, 20.6 crore in Nigeria, 17.6 crore in Brazil, 17.1 crore in Bangladesh, 16.5 crore in the US, 15.2 crore in Europe, 12.3 crore in Mexico, 12.1 crore in Ethiopia and 10.3 crore in Egypt faced severe heat in June.
