According to the data of the Copernicus Climate Change Service of the European Union (EU), after the formation of the El Nino weather event and the record-breaking sea surface temperature last month, the air temperature on land reached the highest average measured for this period of the year in the first 11 days of June.
Global air temperature for the first time in June exceeded the pre-industrial average by 1.5 degrees.
With the Paris Agreement, it was aimed to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5 degrees for 20 and 30-year periods.
“While the current El Niño event continues to evolve, there is reason to expect the global average of air temperature to rise by more than 1.5 degrees Celsius over the pre-industrial period over the next 12 months,” the Copernicus service said in a statement. statement was included.
Average air temperature rise had previously exceeded the 1.5 degree threshold. However, this increase was recorded for the first time in June. The 1.5 degree threshold was crossed for the first time in December 2015, then in the winter and spring months of 2016 and 2020.
In its report in May, the World Meteorological Organization announced that there is a 66 percent probability that the global average air temperature for the period 2023-2027 will remain 1.5 degrees above the pre-industrial average for at least one year.
