2023 will probably be the warmest one in the globes history

The Earth experienced the highest summer temperature in the northern hemisphere, compounded by a sweltering August – the World Meteorological Organization.

Last August was not only the hottest scientists have ever recorded but the second-hottest month in recorded history after July of this year.

It was about 1.5 degrees Celsius (or 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial level in August. However, the world tries to prevent crossing this threshold. At the same time, the scientists consider the increments of temperatures that happen over a couple of months insignificant, but in the process of decades, it matters for them.

These are the most recent findings of June, July, August, September, and probably October were the hottest months from the date the record started till now.

Almost without saying, this year has turned out to be scorching, and the year 2023 will probably be the warmest one in the globe’s history.

Most ENSO forecast models suggest that a great El niño will persist through mid-2024.

So far through the day, October may record high temperatures, although not as extreme as September.

While a strong El Niño and human-made warming contribute considerably to the abnormal heat of the previous months, several other factors, such as an incline on the 11-year solar cycle and a unique volcanic eruption last year, among others, have also assisted in.

The past 12 months have registered an unprecedented high in ocean heat content for September this year.

The last six months have seen very low Antarctic sea ice below the previous record low and near the bottom end of the historical range for the Arctic sea ice.

Global temps, which include those of most countries worldwide, agree very well with forecasts of climate models.
