Last month was the hottest June on record, continuing a streak of exceptional temperatures that some scientists said puts 2024 on track to be the world's hottest recorded year, Reuters reported, citing the EU's climate change monitoring service on Monday.

Every month since June 2023 - 13 months in a row - has ranked as the planet's hottest since records began, compared with the corresponding month in previous years, the European Union's Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) said in a monthly bulletin.

The latest data suggest 2024 could outrank 2023 as the hottest year since records began after human-caused climate change and the El Nino natural weather phenomenon both pushed temperatures to record highs in the year so far, some scientists said.

The changed climate has already unleashed disastrous consequences around the world in 2024.
