Macedonia Hot Weather Climate Extremes
A man jumps into a swimming pool on a hot day in Skopje, Macedonia, on Wednesday, July 3, 2013 as the temperature reaches 30C (86F). Global warming accelerated since the 1970s and broke more countries' temperature records than ever before in the first decade of the new millennium, U.N. climate experts said Wednesday. The decade ending in 2010 was an unprecedented era of climate extremes, the agency said, evidenced by heat waves in Europe and Russia, droughts in the Amazon Basin, Australia and East Africa, and huge storms like Tropical Cyclone Nargis and Hurricane Katrina.
