The world continues to heat up rapidly. Last Minute WORLD headlines and events


According to US scientists, last year was the fifth hottest summer in 90 years. Also, the last 9 years have been the hottest 9 years since the pre-industrial era. This situation seriously threatens the goal of keeping global warming at 1.5 degrees, which was set under the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015.

NASA also announced that last year was the fifth warmest year on record since air temperature measurements began in 1880. Experts note that this situation occurred despite the La Niña weather phenomenon, which led to a drop in temperatures last year.

It has been established that the average air temperature in the world is 1.1-1.2 degrees higher than in the pre-industrial period.

Similarly, experts from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the European Union announced that 2022 was the fifth hottest year on record.

NASA has said that global average temperatures are rising by 0.2 degrees every 10 years and that there is a risk of the maximum increase of 1.5 degrees announced in the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.

Gavin Schmidt, director of space science at NASA’s Goddard Institute, said: “If we keep going like this, it will take less than 20 years before we reach 1.5 degrees of magnification. “The only way to prevent this is to stop emitting greenhouse gases into the atmosphere,” he said.

Schmidt said he expects 2023 to be warmer than 2022 despite a cooler La Niña effect.

ETH Zurich climate expert Sonya Seneviratne noted that over the next 10 years, global temperatures will rise even more.

unusual weather events

Global warming has also caused extreme weather events around the world in 2022. In Europe, there was a summer season with record levels of heat. At the same time, 1,700 people died due to flooding in Pakistan. Unusual temperatures and wildfires have also been observed in Uganda and many Mediterranean countries.

Despite commitments from many developed and leading countries to reduce their emissions to zero, carbon emissions continue to rise on the global stage. Schmidt said the amount of carbon dioxide measured in the atmosphere last year has reached levels not seen in 3 million years.

At this year’s COP28 climate conference, countries are said to be assessing the 1.5-degree temperature rise goal reached in Paris.
