U.N. souds alarm bells over highest Arctic temperature on record.

 The United Nations has officially recognised a temperature of 38C measured
in Siberia last year, sounding “alarm bells” over climate change. The
new high was recorded on June 20, 2020, in the Russian town of Verkhoyansk,
marking the highest temperature ever recorded within the Arctic Circle, the
World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said. The temperature was measured
at a meteorological station during a prolonged Siberian heatwave. The WMO
described it as “more befitting the Mediterranean than the Arctic”.
