And in terms of climate change, records follow and resemble each other in 2020. Another recent example: November 2020 was the hottest November ever recorded in the world, according to the European service Copernicus.

The twelve-month period from December 2019 to November 2020 is 1.28 ° C above the temperatures of the pre-industrial era, explains Copernicus in its monthly climate report published on Monday. While the years 2015 to 2020 are the six hottest on record, that number puts the planet dangerously close to the first ceiling of the Paris Agreement, which turns five this week.
