We know that global warming is real, and those who deny it are the ones who want to live the life they are living right now without worrying about the future and cutting down on their emissions. It is also worth noting that there has been a lot of work done in the direction of reducing global warming but it is a fact that we are currently producing emissions faster than we ever were which means that its reduction will be really hard too. However, the real problems start when we start seeing the effects of global warming as they can seen in phenomenons such as tsunamis, hailstorms, excess rainfall or drought and similar ones.
One of them is also the global temperatures as we know that the global greenhouse gases are causing the earth to become hotter and hotter by the day, and this is evident from the latest report regarding global temperatures on the globe. It is worth noting that 2023 is going to create the record for the worst year in history in terms of average temperatures. Yes, 2023 is going to become the hottest year ever since records started, and September setting new records for temperature did not help.
Deputy Drector of Copernicus, in a statement, said “The unprecedented temperatures for the time of year observed in September – following a record summer – have broken records by an extraordinary amount,” It is reported that September felt more like hot July with “average global air temperature of 16.38 degrees Celsius (61.45 Fahrenheit), making the month 0.93 degrees Celsius hotter than the 1991 to 2020 average, and 1.75 degrees Celsius hotter than the September average for the pre-industrial era, before the world started burning large amounts of fossil fuels”.
The report noted that it is “well above the 1.5 degrees Celsius threshold to which countries aim to limit global warming under the Paris Climate Agreement. While that agreement focuses on long-term average temperatures, September’s abnormal heat – which followed the hottest summer ever recorded – has given a preview of what the world can expect as soaring temperatures supercharge extreme weather”. A climate scientist wrote on X that “This month was, in my professional opinion as a climate scientist – absolutely gobsmackingly bananas,”
