Global warming has exceeded 2 degrees Celsius for the first time, according to data shared by the Deputy Director of the Copernicus Climate Change Service. Scientists have been warning for decades that if global warming exceeds this level, it could have devastating and irreversible effects on the Earth.
According to Samantha Burgess, deputy director of the Copernicus Climate Change Service, the EU’s climate monitoring agency, previously saidTwitter(Twitter), according to preliminary data shared by X’s social platform, the global average temperature on the 17th was 2.06 degrees Celsius higher than the level before the Industrial Revolution.
According to CNN, this key number has only been exceeded temporarily. This does not mean that the world will enter a permanent 2°C warming situation. However, this means that the world is moving towards a long-term situation in which the climate crisis will be irreversible under some circumstances.
“Our best estimate is that this is the first time that global temperatures have increased by more than 2 degrees Celsius above 1850-1900 (pre-Industrial Revolution) levels, to 2.06 degrees Celsius,” they wrote in the post.
The global average temperature on the 17th was 1.17 degrees Celsius above 1991 to 2020 levels, setting a record for the hottest day in November, Burgess said in the post.
But that’s 2.06 degrees Celsius higher than levels before the Industrial Revolution, when humans began burning fossil fuels on a large scale, altering Earth’s climate.
United NationsThe 28th Conference of the Parties to the Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28) will be held in Dudu from 30 November to 12 December.bidenField. Countries will take stock of their progress under the 2015 Paris Agreement to limit global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial revolution levels, with the ambitious hope of limiting it to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Burgess told CNN that a rise in Earth’s daily temperature of more than 2 degrees Celsius does not mean the Paris climate agreement is broken, but it highlights that we are approaching the upper limit of international consensus. Are. We can expect temperatures in the coming months and years to exceed 2°C.” The frequency of days with levels of 1.5°C and 2°C increased from before the Industrial Revolution.”
According to CNN, the data from the Copernicus Climate Change Service is only preliminary in nature and still needs real-life observational data to be confirmed in a few weeks.
