Climate change is almost unstoppable. The World Weather Organization (WMO) has collected alarming data in a report.
Four key indicators of climate change have hit record highs, according to the World Weather Organization’s (WMO) new climate status report.
The WMO reported on Wednesday in Geneva that this underscores the devastating consequences of human activities for the ecosystems that are supposed to ensure the survival of mankind. Records were set for sea level rise, ocean heat content, ocean acidification and the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. This is mainly carbon dioxide (CO2).
The WMO confirmed its preliminary calculation that the global mean temperature in 2021 was about 1.1 degrees above the pre-industrial level (1850-1900) and the past seven years have been the warmest on record. The hottest year so far was 2016, with 1.2 degrees above pre-industrial levels.
