World’s hottest week – level 3

11-07-2023 07:00

The UN secretary general expressed concern that climate change is out of control as data analysis suggested that the past week was the hottest on record.

The average global temperature reached 17.18 degrees Celsius on Tuesday, surpassing the previous record set on Monday. This trend is attributed to anthropogenic global heating and the return of El Niño weather patterns. The NOAA cautioned that while the unofficial numbers couldn’t be validated, they indicated that climate change was entering uncharted territory. Scientists predict more record-breaking temperatures due to the combined effects of global heating and El Niño. Heatwaves have been experienced in various parts of the world, including the southern US and China. The mild winter in the Antarctic contributed to the recent heat records, with temperatures significantly higher than historical averages.

This global warming poses a threat to wildlife and increases the risk of diseases spreading in polar regions.

Difficult words: anthropogenic (caused by human activity), validate (check or prove the accuracy of), uncharted (unknown).
