Geneva.

 The past three months have been the hottest ever recorded on Earth, according to the United Nation’s World Meteorological Organisation.

The UN agency, citing data from the EU’s Copernicus Climate Change Service, further said August was the hottest month on record “by a large margin” and the second hottest ever month after July 2023.

August is estimated to have been around 1.5 degrees Celsius warmer than the pre-industrial average.

August also saw the highest global monthly average sea surface temperatures on record at 20.98 degrees Celsius.

“Our planet has just endured a season of simmering – the hottest summer on record.

“Climate breakdown has begun,” said UN Secretary General António Guterres in a statement.
