Europe marks highest Autumn temperatures in history, says last month the hottest November on record

The European Union’s satellite monitoring service on December 7, said that the last month was the hottest November on record as Europe marked its highest autumn temperatures in history.

“These records are consistent with the long-term warming trend of the global climate,” said Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) director Carlo Buontempo, adding further “All policy-makers who prioritise mitigating climate risks should see these records as alarm bells and consider more seriously than ever how to best comply with the international commitments set out in the 2015 Paris Agreement.”

As per C3S analysis of surface and air temperatures, November 2020 was 0.8C warmer than the 30-year average of 1981-2010 – more than 0.1C hotter than the previous record.
