NASA, NOAA and the World Meteorological Organization confirmed today that 2019 is the second hottest year on record,media reported. The close to the hottest decade on record is undoubtedly disastrous. It comes after a similar statement was made by the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service. It is reported that although 2016 beats 2019, the average global surface temperature that year is only 0.04C higher than last year.
In addition, 2019 broke other records, such as Europe experienced its hottest year on record. This is the warmest year on record, according to a study published in Advances in The Ad Sciences. NOAA reported last week that 2019 was the second wettest year for the United States.
Experts point out that it is no coincidence that 2019 has been so unusual. All this suggests that climate change is already changing the planet. “We are experiencing the effects of global warming,” Noah Diffenbaugh, a professor of earth sciences at Stanford University, said at a news conference this week. “
2019 was the 43rd consecutive year of above-average land and ocean temperatures around the world. The five hottest years since records behaved in 1880 occurred after 2015. It is important to record higher and higher temperature trends. Gavin a. director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. “The main problem here is not ranking but consistency of methods and long-term trends,” Schmidt told reporters. He added that these upward trends should, by their very nature, be 100 per cent attributed to human activity.
It is understood that the burning of fossil fuels has caused the Earth’s temperature to be 1 cC higher than before industrialization (the second half of the 19th century). The 2015 Paris climate agreement sought to limit rising temperatures to 2 degrees Celsius, but scientists believe that by then, 99 percent of the world’s coral reefs will have disappeared and 70 percent of the coastline will be shrinked by rising sea levels. The World Meteorological Organization predicts that by the end of the century, current levels of carbon dioxide emissions could push global temperatures by three to five degrees.
