  • Europe had its warmest summer on record this year, though only by a small margin over two previous highest temperatures for June-August, European Union scientists said on Tuesday.
  • Copernicus’ records go back to 1950 but are cross-checked with other data sets that trace back to the mid-19th century.
  • For Europe, August 2021 was near the 1991-2020 average, but with contrasting conditions across the continent.
