Temperatures could rise by 2.9 degrees Celsius by this century

Temperatures could rise by 2.9 degrees Celsius by this century

The world’s countries have made pledges to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but they are not enough to prevent a significant increase in global warming. As a result, the Earth’s temperature may rise to a potentially catastrophic 2.9 degrees within the current century.

The European Climate Observatory Copernicus reported that the global average temperature has risen above 2 degrees Celsius for the first time since pre-industrial levels.

This year is expected to be the hottest in human history. UNEP warns that the world is experiencing an alarming increase in the frequency, intensity, and size of climate-related records.

UNEP warned that global temperatures could increase by 2.5 to 2.9 degrees Celsius by 2100, even with countries’ plans to cut carbon emissions. Based on current policies and efforts to reduce emissions alone, global warming could even rise to 3 degrees Celsius.

The world continues to release record amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, UNEP said. Emissions increased by 1.2 percent in 2022 over 2021.

Countries that signed the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015 agreed to limit global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, with a goal of achieving 1.5 degrees Celsius if possible. But so far this year, the mercury has risen above 1.5 degrees Celsius over more than 80 days, UNEP said.

To keep temperatures below 2°C by 2030, global carbon emissions would need to be 28 percent below current levels. To keep the temperature below 1.5 degrees Celsius, global emissions need to be reduced by 42 percent.

The global average temperature reached recently 2c degrees above pre-industrial levels. The global temperature has reached a record level for the first time, according to the European climate monitoring agency Copernicus. The organization said that this unprecedented trend of temperature continued for some days.

Global temperatures have risen 2.07 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, according to new data from the European Union’s Climate Service (C3S).

Samantha Burgess X, former Twitter employee, and deputy head of C3S, stated that global temperatures have now surpassed 2 degrees Celsius above the 1850–1900 levels for the first time.
