UN releases new data: 2019 is the second warmest in measurement history



Last year was the second hottest since the Industrial Revolution, behind 2016, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) announced on Wednesday.

The average global temperature was 1.1 degrees Celsius higher than the average temperatures of the second half of the 19th century, the UN-based Geneva-based agency announced.



“If current levels of carbon dioxide emissions continue, we are moving towards a temperature rise of three to five degrees by the end of the century,” WMO Secretary General Petteri Taalas warned in a statement.

The Paris Agreement

Under the 2015 Paris Agreement, states pledged to keep temperature rise below two degrees relative to pre-industrial levels. The treaty set a target of 1.5 degrees.

In addition to being extremely warm, 2019 will also be remembered for reducing glacier volume, record sea level rise, rising ocean temperatures and acidity, as well as extreme weather, according to WMO.

“2020 has continued to where it left off in 2019 – with devastating weather and climate-related events,” Taalas said. He highlighted, for example, the forest fires in Australia that followed after 2019, the hottest and driest year in the continent's history.
