On 27 July 2023, a joint statement was released by Copernicus and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) accompanied by Figure 1.
Copernicus is the Earth observation component of the European Union’s space programme and provides freely accessible data (including non-space data) related to our planet and its environment. The statement declared that July 2023 was extremely likely to be the hottest month ever recorded, following on from the hottest June ever recorded. This was confirmed in early September when all the data for summer 2023 were analysed.
