The British Meteorological Department said in a statement that the next five years would be extremely hot, even with the possibility of exceeding the limits set by the Paris Agreement – 1.5 degrees centigrade.
According to the British Meteorological Department’s forecast for the next decade, the temperature will increase from 1.5 to 1.6 degrees Celsius above the previous average in the years 2020 to 2024. It was added that the record for the hottest year 2016 to date is also expected to be broken in these years.
“The temperature is steadily rising over the next five years, which is the result of ever increasing greenhouse gases.”
“Climate forecasts may be high, but extreme heat is likely in most areas including northern Europe, Asia and North America are likely to receive heat,” said the report. The temperatures from 2015 to 2019 were 1.09 percent higher than before the industrial revolution.
According to Stephen Bleacher, a meteorologist for the British Department of Meteorology, “a 1.5 percent increase in temperature for a while does not mean that the Paris Agreement is terminated”. He said that the Paris Agreement had been talking about a 1.5 percent increase, rather than any one year.
According to him, “but according to our weather forecast, the temperature will continue to rise even further, thereby lowering the expectations for the implementation of the agreement.” At just over 1 percent above the average temperature of the industrial revolution, the world is currently suffering from severe drought, hurricanes and wildfire problems due to climate change.
