Climate change: May 2020 is hottest month on record

C3S announced on June 5, 2020, 'May 2020 was the hottest May in the world with 0.63 degrees Celsius higher than the average temperature in May 1981-2010' .. Below is a diagram created by C3S that compares the average temperature of May 2020 with the average temperature of May 1981 to 2010.The red part shows that the temperature in May 2020 is higher than in the past. is showing.

C3S said, 'Extremely unusual temperatures were observed over Siberia in Russia, and in the lower reaches of the Obi and Yenisei rivers in the northwest, the average temperature for 1981-2010 was nearly 10 degrees higher. Reports that river ice has collapsed at a record early time.'

In addition, NASA's

Goddard Institute for Space Science said in a tweet on June 13, 'The abnormal value of the global average temperature in May 2020 was 1.02 degrees higher than the average of May 1951 to May 1980'. I reported.

NASA has also released monthly global average temperatures since 1880, again showing that temperatures in May 2020 are 'higher than in any May after 1880'. From this data, Yale Climate Connections, a climate phenomenon-related information service led by Yale University, said, ``All five months since the beginning of 2020 ranked in the top 20 of the warmest months in the past 1684 months. users had 'and pointed out .

Moreover, according to NOAA, not only the temperature but also the seawater temperature has reached the highest level ever. In a report released on 14 June, NOAA said, 'The world's sea surface temperature in May 2020 was a record high temperature of 0.79 degrees above the average. , It was only 0.01 degrees in May 2016, which was the highest record of sea surface temperature in May in May 2016.'


C3S climatologist Freja Vamborg said, 'May 2020 was the hottest record on record in May, which is definitely a warning sign. The last 12 months, June 2019 to May 2020, was as hot as the hottest year of the dataset so far.”
