    A World Coming To A Boil

    ‘A world rapidly warming’: The past eight years were the eight warmest on record for planet

    Ivana Kottasová, January 10, 2023 (CNN)

    “The last eight years have been the eight warmest on record as the growing concentration of heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere pushes global temperatures toward a dangerous tipping point…[As confirmed by UK, French, and German reports] 2022 was the fifth-warmest year for the planet since records began [according to a new European Union study. It] brought record-breaking heatwaves in Europe, deadly floods in Pakistan, extreme widespread flooding in Australia, and that saw the Antarctic Sea reach its lowest minimum extent on record…

    …[The] annual average temperature reached 1.2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, marking the eighth year in a row of temperatures at least 1 degree above the 1850 to 1900 reference period…The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) identified the 1.5-degree mark as a key threshold and said breaching it would dramatically increase the risk of extreme weather events and irreversible changes…

    …[T]the report showed continued rising of] atmospheric concentration of CO2 and methane, potent greenhouse gasses that trap heat in the atmosphere and warm the planet…[to] an annual average of 417 parts per million in 2022, an increase of 2.1 parts per million compared to 2021…[Carbon in the atmosphere has not been this high in around 2 million years…Scientists say the link between the greenhouse gasses concentrations and the rising temperatures is unmistakable…” click here for more
