Earth's Relentless Fever: Global Average Temperatures of 2022 Ranked 6th Warmest on Record
image by stable-diffusion
Climate change is real and it's happening now - Earth's global average temperature ranked 6th warmest on record in 2022, a reminder that we must take action to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
Earth's relentless fever of global warming continued in 2022, as the global average temperature ranked 6th warmest on record, according to a report released Thursday by government agencies. The report, compiled by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), shows that despite a La Nina, a cooling of the equatorial Pacific that slightly offset the warming, the global average temperature still increased by 1.68 degrees Fahrenheit (0.94 degrees Celsius). The report also noted that the Arctic and Antarctic regions experienced the most warming, with the Arctic seeing twice as much warming as the global average. "This is a reminder that the planet is still warming and that we are seeing the effects of climate change in our everyday lives," said Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Schmidt also warned that record-breaking hot years are likely in the next couple of years due to the "relentless" climate change caused by the burning of coal, oil and gas. "The data is clear, and the science is unequivocal: The Earth is warming, and it's happening faster than ever," said Schmidt. "We need to take action now if we want to avoid the worst effects of climate change."
