Confirman que 2023 fue el año más caliente registrado en el mundo

January 10, 2024 - El año pasado fue el año más caliente registrado en el planeta por un margen sustancial y probablemente el más calido en los pasados 100.000 años, según científicos de la UE.

Scientists had widely expected the milestone, after climate records were repeatedly broken. Since June, every month has been the world’s hottest on record compared with the corresponding month in previous years.

The European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) confirmed 2023 as the hottest year in global temperature records going back to 1850. When checked against paleoclimatic data records from sources such as tree rings and air bubbles in glaciers, C3S Director Carlo Buontempo said it was “very likely” the warmest year in the last 100,000 years.

On average, in 2023 the planet was 1.48 degrees Celsius warmer than in the 1850-1900 pre-industrial period, when humans began burning fossil fuels on an industrial scale, pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Countries agreed in the 2015 Paris Agreement to try to prevent global warming surpassing 1.5C, to avoid its most severe consequences.

The world has not breached that target – which refers to an average global temperature of 1.5C over decades – but C3S said that temperatures had exceeded the level on nearly half of the days of 2023 set “a dire precedent”, according to Reuters.
