Japan records hottest September in 125 Years, at par with global warming concernstext_fields
Tokyo: Japan has experienced its hottest September since it began keeping weather records 125 years ago, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.
The average temperature for September soared to 2.66 degrees Celsius (36.78 degrees Fahrenheit) higher than the usual average, reported AFP.
The agency reported that this figure is "the highest since the start of statistics in 1898." These unprecedented temperatures are indicative of the global warming crisis, with climate change leading to record-breaking temperatures worldwide.
Several European countries, including Austria, France, Germany, Poland, and Switzerland, also recorded their warmest September temperatures on record. France's Meteo-France stated that the country's September temperature average was approximately 21.5 degrees Celsius, which is 3.5 to 3.6 degrees Celsius higher than the reference period from 1991 to 2020.
Even the United Kingdom has matched its record for the warmest September since records began in 1884. These consistently rising temperatures across the globe are a stark reminder of the pressing issue of climate change.
