Warmest Summers Across Globe in Next 50 Years

In less than five decades, summers across most of the globe could be hotter than any summer experienced by people to date, researchers have estimated. If climate change continues on its current trajectory, the probability that summers between 2061 and 2080 will be warmer than the hottest on record stands at 80 per cent across the world's land areas, excluding Antarctica, which was not studied, the researchers said. If greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, however, that probability drops to 41 per cent.
