2023: a first in 2000 years. Explanations.

Summer 2023

According to a study published in the scientific journal Naturethe summer has never been so hot in 2000 years in the northern hemisphere in 2023. Scientists from the German University of Mainz used modeling to estimate trends in the years before 1900. According to the authors of study, the rare records from the 19th century tend to exaggerate temperatures.

Heavy trend

In 2023, the warming trend has continued. Since the advent of industrialization and the rampant use of fossil fuels, the Earth has been warming. Here, the graph shows the progression of global temperature warming. Note that during the summer of 2023, the El Niño phenomenon amplified the temperature anomaly in the northern hemisphere.


Quebec appearing

La Belle Province observed this trend from afar during the summer of 2023. In fact, Quebec did not participate in this historic anomaly since the season turned out to be slightly above normal in terms of temperatures. Considering the average of the last 30 years, the months of June, July and August of last year presented a more timid anomaly compared to 2018, 2020 and 2021.
