2020 Is the beginning of the hottest decade in history?

By the beginning of 2020, the Earth is ending the warmest decade in history, according to UN forecasts, in an annual assessment of how climate change is overtaken and the ability of mankind to adapt to it.

So far this year, global temperatures have been 1.1 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial era average, the World Meteorological Organization said. This puts 2019 on track to be among the three hottest years in history.

Accordingly, this year 2019 "concludes an unprecedented decade of global warming, ice receding and rising sea levels due to greenhouse gases from human activities."

The average temperatures for the five-year (2015-2019) and ten-year (2010-2019) periods will almost certainly be the highest ever.

If human interaction with nature continues like this, 2020 will be the beginning of a warmer decade than before.

Atmospheric CO 2 concentrations reached a record 407.8 ppm in 2018, and this level continued to rise over 2019. "

If we do not take urgent action on climate now, we are moving towards increasing temperatures by more than 3 degrees Celsius by the end of the century, with adverse effects on human well-being," said World Meteorological Organization Secretary-General Peteri Talas.

Achieve the goal of the Paris Agreement. " Internal displacement in the first half of 2019 was about 10 million; of which 7 million were due to weather events, such as Hurricane Eddie in Southeast Africa, Fanny in South Asia, and Durian in the Caribbean.

Flooding in Iran, the Philippines and Ethiopia has resulted in the emergence of significant humanitarian and protection needs.
