Last 7 years were hottest on record


Recommended Posts

The relentless procession of planetary heating continued in 2021, with the past seven years now the hottest years ever recorded.

Data released Monday by the European climate observation service Copernicus showed last year was the fifth hottest since measurements began, despite the global cooling influence of a La Niña in the Pacific Ocean.

"It gets difficult to say something new each time we see signs of another nail in the planetary coffin," said Brian Hoskins, chair of the Grantham Institute at Imperial College London.

Earth’s global average surface temperature in 2021 tied 2018 as the sixth-warmest year on record, according to independent analyses from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Global temperatures in 2021 were 0.85 degrees Celsius (1.5 degrees Fahrenheit) above the average for NASA’s baseline period, according to scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS). NASA uses the period from 1951-1980 as a baseline to compare how global temperatures change over time.

Collectively, the past eight years have been the warmest since modern recordkeeping began in 1880. This annual temperature data is part of the global temperature record that tells scientists how much and where our planet has been warming. Earth in 2021 was about 1.1°C (1.9°F) warmer than it was in the late 19th century, when the Industrial Revolution was underway and weather stations were popping up around the world.

I think we're way to late to reverse in a meaningful way climate change, the best is to rebuild, move populations and try to implement carbon capture and storage.
