The Warmest Year Ever Recorded Would Be 2023

Scientists from the European Union predicted on Wednesday that 2023 will be the warmest year ever recorded. For the first eleven months of the year, the global average temperature reached 1.46 degrees Celsius above the average from 1850 to 1900, the highest level ever recorded.


The document was released during the nations’ deliberations at the COP28 conference in Dubai. The major contributors of greenhouse gas emissions, coal, oil, and gas, are being phased out or gradually stopped by governments. The average temperature from January to November was 0.13 degrees higher than it was in 2016, which is now the warmest year on record. The Copernicus Climate Change Service provided that data.


The warmest November on record globally occurred in 2023. The mean temperature of the surface air was 14.22 degrees, which was 0.85 degrees higher than the average for November from 1991 to 2020. According to C3S, it was 0.32 degrees warmer than the previous warmest November of 2020. Samantha Burgess works as C3S’s deputy director. “November temperatures, including two days warmer than 2C above preindustrial, mean that 2023 is the warmest year in recorded history,” she declared in a statement. September through November in the Northern Hemisphere proved to be the warmest fall on record as well. According to EU scientists, the average temperature was 15.3 degrees, 0.88 degrees above average.


A target of the 2015 Paris climate agreement was to keep global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. Scientists warn of serious consequences for agriculture, health, and weather at that threshold. Meeting in Dubai, diplomats, scientists, environmentalists, and others are trying to figure out how to keep global warming within those bounds. However, Earth is not being cooperative. It is predicted that Earth would rise by 2.7 to 2.9 degrees Celsius over pre-industrial levels.
