The latest statistics by World Meteorological Organization displays that, the global temperature is 1.2C beyond pre-industrial levels and will set a new high for the third consecutive year.
The year 2016 is likely to be the warmest year in history. According to an estimated record, year 2016 will be the 17 warmest year in this century.
According to meteorological scientists, ‘The burning high temperature around the entire world, and the effect of weather change on people are sooner and with more eeriness than anticipated.’ The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) released a report on Monday at the global climate summit in Morocco, North Africa. It was discovered that, the global temperature in 2016 is running above the level of 1.2C. This count is dangerously close to the 1.5C target noted during the Paris climate agreement last December.
The World Meteorological Organization’s cretary General, Petteri Taalas said, “Another year. Another record,” as he pointed out global warming to be the prime cause for this high temperature. Also because of climate change, the incidence and effect of this extreme event has risen. The authority also stated that, the human-made global warming occupies to at least half the share of the current weather happenings which are quite alarming.
According to the WMO report, global temperatures for January 2016 to September 2016 have been over 0. 88°C; above the average (14°C) for the year 1961-1990 period. The climate temperature spiked in the starting months of the year mainly due to the effects of the powerful El Niño event during 2015-16. This report also says, with the addition of the preliminary calculation for the month of October, this is the highest level for the current year. The condition is expected to grow intense if proper prevention measures aren’t implemented.
