- In many places in the world, the mercury was above 40 degrees in June.
- Europe, Africa and Asia in the grip of severe heat and drought
In June and July 2022, the temperature increased so much that the mercury crossed 40 degrees Celsius in many areas of Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and Asia. In many places, the mercury broke the record of the thermometer. The map you are seeing is from 13th July 2022. In this, the surface air temperature is shown over the Eastern Hemisphere of the Earth. Which is above 40 degree Celsius.
This map has been created from data obtained from the Goddard Earth Observing System (GOES) global model. According to these maps, the temperature has been determined on the basis of increased heat in the atmosphere and locality. Steven Poson, head of global modeling and assimilation at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, said that you can clearly see warm areas in red and cold areas in blue on this map.
Steven said that due to the pollution being spread by humans, the emission of greenhouse gases is constantly changing climate. Globally, the heat is increasing. A terrible drought is spreading in Western Europe. Due to heat and drought, wildfires are spreading in parts of Portugal, Spain and France. The temperature in Portugal has reached 45 ° C. Here an area of 7400 acres of the town named Liriya has been burnt. Forest fires are burning in 14 places in half of Portugal.
On July 13, 2022, Earth satellites captured temperatures rising above 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) due to extreme, record-breaking heatwaves across much of Europe, Africa, and Asia: https://t.co/tD6DmpXMyz pic.twitter.com/cb3P1F699Y

In China, the roads have melted. The roof broke. The temperature in Shanghai had reached 40.9 degrees Celsius. Humidity has also increased there. Not only this, NASA has released two more maps. In which how the whole world got spoiled in 46 years. That is, from 1976 to 2022, how the map went from blue to red.
The Mamolada Glacier on the Dolomites broke due to heat and an avalanche killed 11 hikers. England has given a warning of extreme heat across the country. In Tunisia, North Africa, the crop has been damaged due to a heatwave. The temperature in the capital Tunis reached 48 degrees Celsius on 13 July. The temperature in Iran had reached the highest of 52 degrees Celsius.
