Index – Science – This year may be the hottest since measurements began

In the document, experts say: A summer of record global temperatures was also followed by a record-warm September.

The September temperature was 0.5°C warmer than the warmest September on record since records began, and nearly a full degree Celsius warmer than the average September temperature between 1991 and 2020.

Samantha Burgess, deputy director of the Copernicus Climate Change Service, reported on the record warm summer and September. According to his advertisement

The average global temperature in 2023 will be 1.4°C higher than pre-industrial levels.

The figure in the report is just 0.1°C below the target set in the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, which would limit global warming to 1.5°C compared to the average global temperature before the industrial revolution by the end of the century.

But in September this year, compared to the pre-industrial period between 1850 and 1900, the average global temperature was already 1.75 degrees Celsius higher.

In his announcement, Burgess emphasized the following:

Urgent action is needed to stop rising temperatures.

The report was prepared on the basis of computer analyzes of billions of measurement data provided by satellites, ships, aircraft and weather stations. C3S is one of six thematic information services provided by the European Union’s Copernicus Earth Observation Programme.
