It will only get worse.

According to scientists from the National Center for Environmental Information, January 2020 was the hottest month in over 140 years of measurement history. Global surface temperature of the planet and ocean were 1.14 degrees higher than the average of the entire 20th century, thus breaking the previous record was set less than four years ago, in 2016.

The impact of global warming was most noticeable in most of Russia, Canada and Scandinavia – in these regions in January 2020 temperatures were 5C higher than the average from previous years. The Swedish city of Orebro was the warmest region since 1858 – the outside temperature rose to almost 11 degrees Celsius. American Boston, in turn, could boast a temperature of 23 degrees Celsius – the highest ever recorded at this time of year.

Readings taken directly from Antarctica scientists call the amazing and even abnormal – average temperature fluctuations in the region were as much as 20 degrees Celsius. If such sentences fall from the mouths of scientists, then we actually have something to fear.

World governments in 2015 agreed to take action to stop the rising average temperature. According to scientists, it cannot exceed 2 degrees Celsius. If this happens, then we will also face problems in the form of fires and floods. It is also worth remembering the lack of access to food as well as mass displacements that will take place in affected regions.

Currently, there is not much being done with global warming – at least in the era of what the planet really needs. The largest technological giants and activists from around the world are working on a solution to the problem of greenhouse gas emissions. Bill Gates, among others, allocated his money to help.

At this moment, it can be expected that average measurement temperatures will only rise. By the time.
