The last six months have been the hottest on record around the globe, according to an American national weather analysis.The heat wave has contributed to droughts around the world, though Israel continues to face the most exceptional situation.

The last five years have represented the longest and most severe dry period in Israel since the 1920s. Britain, too, has entered its worst drought since 1929, while Thailand is braving its worst in twenty years.
