NASA has some disturbing news.
At 140 years of modern records, and 2019 is the year the second hottest year recorded, this means that 19 of the past 20 years, and now the warmest in recorded history.
In a video just over a minute long, NASA provides a concise reduction of climate trends since 1880. In 2019, the Earth is constantly warming, is more than 2 degrees Celsius(just over 1 ° C)temperature than it was in the late 1800s. As the space Agency points out that this warming resulted in 2019-an unprecedented fire and increased melting of Greenland’s largest ice fields.
“We crossed the border into more than 2 degrees Celsius warmer territory in 2015, we can’t go back,”Gavin Schmidt served as the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, said in a statement. “This suggests that what is happening is persistent, not a Fluke, due to some weather phenomenon: we know that the long-term trend is driven by increased levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.”
The Earth’s atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions, a potent greenhouse gas, are now straight up. CO2 levels are not this high school At least 800 000 years—although more likely millions of years. More importantly, the carbon levels are in the rate of increase is unprecedented, in both geological and historical records.
NASA’s temperature record to match the results of other research institutes, such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA), and draws on data collected from more than 20,000 weather stations.
The Earth’s warming trends are accelerating. Over the past decade warmest record. “Every decade since the 1960s, has apparently been warmer than the previous one,”said Schmidt.
