The World Meteorological Organization, or WMO for short, had declared on Wednesday, that the last record holder for hottest year has been dethrone. 2015 has been declared hottest year in history, usurping the position of the last record holder which was 2014.
According to WMO and the United Nations weather forecasts, it would seem that we didn’t had to wait out for too long in order to declare a champion in this contest of temperatures. And, the statement doesn’t even come as a surprise for most of us who are aware that 2015 was indeed a hot year. But, there is also a downside to this. The United Nations weather specialists cautioned that increased global temperatures can have dramatical repercussions on our planet.
A couple of scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, confirmed that 2015 is the hottest year ever registered in human history. By their estimates, 2014, the last record holder for this category, had mild temperatures compared to this year. In 2014, global temperatures exceeded an average of 14.57 degrees Celsius. For those who fancy the imperial metric system, the average temperatures, in 2014, had an average of 58.323 degrees Fahrenheit.
NOAA pushes even further and admits that the ever shifting temperatures could be an indicator that something might have disturbed Mother Nature. Michel Jarraud, the secretary-general for the United Nations’ weather forecast system confirmed this by stressing out a couple of facts about how global temperature has shifted.
According to some estimates, since the pre-industrial times, overall temperatures have increased by 1 degree Celsius or 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. This can be construed as an achievement, because, according to the temperature agenda, the World leaders took upon themselves to come up with additional environmental policies capable of keeping the global warming effect within a 2 degrees Celsius interval.
The main reason that led to this increase in global temperatures is because of the so-called heat-trapping gases. Apparently these gases can be traced back to the early burning of oil, gas and coal. Moreover, it would seem that the combo of heat-trapping gases and El Nino’s incursions seem to be most detrimental to our plant.
Scientists also have sighted additional implications of the unnatural global warming. It would seem that countries like Pakistan or India have registered temperatures exceeding 45 degrees Celsius this year. Moreover, it would also seem that the Patricia Hurricane made quite a lot of damage in Mexico. Also, heavy rains and flood have been registered all across the United States.
