The report released on the eve of the UN summit on climate, which will begin on September 23
Since the beginning of 2015 to the end of 2019 recorded the five hottest years in history, according to a report by the world meteorological organization of the UN (WMO).
During the specified period, the average global temperature in the next five years – 1.1 Degrees higher than in pre-industrial (1850-1900 years), and 0.2 Degrees higher than in 2011-2015.
The UN experts pointed out that these data confirmed the trend of the last four years which have become the warmest since 1850. The volume of emissions also continue to increase.
The researchers drew attention to the acceleration of sea-level rise. In the last 10 years the increase in water level, which previously amounted to three millimeters a year, now increased to four millimeters. Experts attribute this to the accelerated melting of glaciers on the North and South poles, which was confirmed by studies and observations from satellites.
The report released on the eve of the UN summit on climate, which will start on 23 September in new York. The aim of the event organized by the UN Secretary General Antonio Guttersen, is a call to heads of States and governments to set more ambitious targets for limiting global warming.
