2021 is ranked fifth among the hottest years

The EU Climate Change Agency report today (Monday) said that 2021 was the fifth of the hottest years on record, and the average global temperature in 2021 was 1.1-1.2 degrees Celsius above the average between 1850-1900. The hottest years recorded so far were 2020 and 2016.

In addition, it was reported that atmospheric carbon dioxide and methane levels reached an all-time high in 2021. Another record recorded: The last seven years have broken heat records on Earth since measurements began in 1850.

The director of the EU Climate Change Agency, which provided the report, said: “Extreme weather events such as floods in Europe, China and southern Sudan, and even fires in Siberia and the United States, are a complete reminder of the need to change our ways immediately, to take decisive and effective action. And work to reduce net carbon emissions. “

According to scientists at the agency, maintaining global temperatures by not exceeding 1.5 degrees Celsius could prevent the devastating effects of global climate events. To this end, the Paris Agreements of 2015 were signed, in which the countries of the world pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by almost half by 2030. In addition, in the agreements signed at the International Summit on Climate Change in Glasgow, the countries of the world pledged to reach zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Finally, scientists at the Climate Change Agency warn against one thing: “At the current rate the world is on its way to experiencing a total temperature rise of 2.4 degrees Celsius by the end of the century, and at such a temperature, the result will be irreversible.”
