UK Met Office officials said Thursday 30 January that the next five years will be the warmest on record. Meteorologists warn that the Paris agreement to raise temperatures by 1.5 ° C until 2024 will be violated, according to Phys.org.
A regular forecast for the coming decade takes into account anticipated climatic events and natural events, such as major volcanic eruptions.
A report from the Meteorological Office said that each year from 2020 to 2024 will be 1, 06-1, 62 ° C warmer than average. The record for the hottest in the history of 2016 will be broken soon.
The five-year forecast promises more warming due to high levels of greenhouse gases. Most regions will be much hotter, especially in northern parts of Europe, Asia and North America.
Average temperatures over 5 years will be 1, 15-1, 46 ° C above pre-industrial levels. This can be compared to the warming between 2015 and 2019, which was 1.09 ° C. Each individual year in this period of time was one of the hottest in history.
There is a possibility that one year between 2020 and 2024 will be able to overcome the warming threshold of 1.5 ° C. Today, with temperatures exceeding 1 ° C, the Earth has already been hit by deadly wildfires, droughts, devastating storms and alarming sea level rise.
