New Delhi, Jan 9: Last year was the warmest year on record with the average global temperature rise compared to pre-industrial levels nearing the 1.5-degree Celsius threshold, according to a European climate agency.
Scientists at Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) said that a 12-month period ending in January or February 2024 may exceed the 1.5-degree Celsius limit, exacerbating climate impacts.
However, this does not imply a permanent breach of the 1.5-degree Celsius limit specified in the Paris Agreement as it refers to long-term warming over many years.
The scientists noted that 2023 marked the first time on record when the average global temperature was 1 degree Celsius above the pre-industrial (1850-1900) level every day.
Close to 50 per cent of days were more than 1.5 degrees Celsius warmer than the 1850-1900 level and for the first time, two days in November were more than 2 degrees Celsius warmer. (PTI)
