Climate change might cause global temperatures to rise by 1.5 Celsius by 2026
The World Meteorological Organization has notified that there is a 50/50 chance that the annual average global temperature might reach 1.5 Celsius above the levels in the coming five years. At the same time, WMO has warned that at least one year between 2022-2026 would be the hottest year on record.
Global Annual to Decadal Climate Update quoted, “The chance of five-year average for 2022-2026 being higher than the last five years is also 93%..” Subsequently, the climate change impact would not only affect a specific country, but it would have an adverse effect worldwide. The Secretary-General of the organisation is quoted as, “Our oceans will continue to become warmer and more acidic, sea ice and glaciers will continue to melt, sea level will continue to rise, and our weather will become more extreme.”
