France recorded all-time highest temperature on Friday 28th June 2019.
The temperature reached 45.9C (114.6°F) which is the highest the country has ever experienced in history.
France is not alone. This comes as Europe is facing a heatwave. Germany recorded temperatures more than 4 degrees higher than average, while Spain is fighting against huge wildfires.
The World Meteorological Organisation in Geneva said 2019 was on course to be among the world’s hottest ever years and that 2015-2019 would then become the hottest five-year period on record.
With climate change, heatwaves will become more intense, they will start earlier and they will finish later.
It is time we all face reality, and make changes to stop this trend before it’s too late. Each small action counts!
