The European climate monitor, Copernicus Climate Change Service, predicts that this year will be the hottest on record.
With November shattering records for the sixth month in a row, the average global temperature for 2023 will be 1.46 degrees Celsius higher than pre-industrial levels.
2023 will go down in history as the warmest year ever, breaking the mark set in 2016. The news comes while the COP28 climate conferences are taking place in Dubai, where participants are debating how to handle fossil fuels and trying to reach a consensus on an “orderly and just” phase-out. The COP28 negotiations go through December 12.
