It’s Terrifying How Hot It Is in These 8 Places Around the World

Record-breaking temperatures are being reported.

Our planet is warming faster than previously thought, an IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report warned in August. It’s hard to miss the cues now—July 2021 was the hottest month on the planet since records began 142 years ago.  The world experienced extreme weather events including heat waves, wildfires, flash floods, and droughts and if we are to believe scientists, this is only going to get worse.  Italy, Greece, Spain, and Turkey faced wildfires, while Germany and Belgium experienced catastrophic flooding. The wildfires in Siberia were the worst ever seen—bigger than the infernos in Europe and North America combined. Floods ravaged China, India, and Japan, while fires blazed in Algeria, Morocco, and Brazil. In California, the Dixie Fire has been burning for more than 60 days, and it’s not the only one! The alarm bells are ringing loud and clear, and these are some of the places that are breaking all temperature records.
