2023 Was the World’s , Hottest Year on Record.

'The Guardian' reports that 2023 was the hottest year ever recorded by a wide margin.

The news provides "dramatic testimony" of worsening climate change and global warming.

.

2023 was 1.48 degrees Celsius hotter than the time before the onset of the climate crises, which is very close to the 1.5 degree limit set by the 2015 Paris Agreement.

For the target to officially be considered broken, global temperatures would need to be consistently over 1.5 degrees Celsius.

According to scientists at the EU's Copernicus Climate Change Service (CCCS), the world is likely to exceed that mark for the first time in 2024.

'The Guardian' reports that the primary cause of increased global temperatures was ongoing record emissions of carbon dioxide, in addition to the return of El Niño.

Increased temperatures reportedly drove heat waves, wildfires and floods that resulted in the loss of lives and livelihoods around the world.

According to CCCS data, 2023 was also the first year on record when every day was at least one degree Celsius higher than pre-industrial records set between 1850-1900.

The extremes we have observed over the last few months provide a dramatic testimony of how far we now are from the climate in which our civilization developed, Carlo Buontempo, Copernicus Climate Change Service (CCCS) director, via 'The Guardian'.

This has profound consequences for the Paris Agreement and all human endeavors.

If we want to successfully manage our climate risk, we need to urgently decarbonize our economy whilst using climate data and knowledge to prepare for the future, Carlo Buontempo, Copernicus Climate Change Service (CCCS) director, via 'The Guardian'
