The United Nations (UN) World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has released a provisional report of its global climate. It said that all six years are set to become the hottest year since the last six years (2015 to 2020) with the latest record starting in 1850. WMO general secretary Petteri Talas has said that 2020 has unfortunately been another extraordinary year for our climate.

Talas said that the average global temperature in the year 2020 is expected to be 1.2 C above pre-industrial level. At the same time in 2020, we saw temperatures at new extremes in land, sea and especially in the Arctic. At the same time, one of the five occasions will come when by 2024, the temporary increase in global temperature will be more than 1.5 C.

According to Talas, the impact of La Nina was not seen this year. La Nina, which has a cooling effect on global temperatures, has failed to stop the heat this year. Talas says that despite La Nina, the year 2020 has reached quite close to the record of summer 2016.

Change possible

According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the year 2020 was the second warmest year so far. However, the organization has said that the gap between the top three years is quite small and till the complete data of this year, the change in the current situation can also be seen.

Bad effects on oceans

At the same time, this report of WMO says that the warming of the oceans has reached a record level. The report states that in the year 2020, more than 80 percent of the oceans have been affected by the heat wave. Due to this, there has been a very bad impact on the marine ecosystem.
