A latest report on global climate by the World Meteorological Organization shows that 2015 is the hottest year ever recorded. Experts said that next year will be even hotter, signaling towards the El Niño weather pattern.
WMO director-general Michel Jarraud ahead of the global climate summit which is scheduled to take place next week in Paris suggested creating steps to keep the temperature rise within two degrees Celsius amid the growing industry.
He said the worldwide surface temperature this year has crossed the mark of what the agency called ‘the symbolic and significant milestone’ of one degrees Celsius. This is all because of a combination of a strong El Niño and human-induced global warming, the WMO said in a statement.
The recent analysis stressed on the point that global warming caused by the upsurge of heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere is the biggest contributor and concludes that El Niño was only a small contributor.
Ed Hawkins, a climate scientist from the University of Reading, said, “Atmospheric carbon dioxide has now passed 400 [parts per million] for the foreseeable future. It will also be the warmest year on record, primarily because of anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases, with CO2 being the main culprit”.
As of now 2014 was on record to be the hottest year but this year has passed the previous year’s record, with October being above average in terms of heat than any other month in the last 135 years.
Scientists presently are also paying most their attention on global warming which is said to be the most crucial environmental issue.
