This winter has been by far the hottest recorded in Europe, scientists have announced, with the climate crisis likely to have supercharged the heat, reports The Guardian
The EU’s Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) data dates back to 1855. It said the average temperature for December, January and February was 1.4C above the previous winter record, which was set in 2015-16. New regional climate records are usually passed by only a fraction of a degree. Europe’s winter was 3.4C hotter than the average from 1981-2010.
