Earth Had Its Hottest Month Ever—How Six Cities Are Coping

From a Wall Street Journal story by Aylin Woodward, Carl Churchill, and Erin Ailworth headlined “Earth Just Had Its Hottest Month Ever. How Six Cities Are Coping.”:

July was Earth’s hottest month on record, surpassing the global monthly average temperature record set in July 2019, according to data from the Copernicus Climate Change Service, a European Union-funded scientific agency. The heat blanketed parts of North America, Asia and Europe as wildfires blazed in Greece and Canada, hitting economies. Water shortages and high humidity affected parts of the Middle East. Residents in China contended with both extreme flooding and a heat wave as the country set a new national temperature record. All this came on the heels of the world’s hottest June on record.
