Arabia Weather - The year 2024 may witness a significant rise in temperatures compared to the hot year of 2023, which witnessed multiple and often deadly climate events in various parts of the world, according to “Axios” data examined from “Arabiya Business.”

 

The rise in temperatures in the hottest year 2024 is a source of further concern about the acceleration of global warming.

At the United Nations Climate Conference (COP28) held in Dubai in December 2023, representatives of about 200 countries reached agreement on the importance of transitioning from the use of fossil fuels, which is a vital step towards changing the way the world provides energy, according to expert reports.

 

The President of the Conference of the Parties (COP28), Sultan Al Jaber, discussed the text in a plenary session in Dubai after two weeks of discussions that witnessed the efforts of countries around the world to search for ways to achieve the commitment to reduce the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius since ancient times.

 

Regarding the year 2023, driven by the development of the “El Nino” phenomenon, it was the hottest year on record, according to a report by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

The report indicated that average global temperatures in 2023 were 1.4 degrees Celsius higher than the pre-industrial average, exceeding previous highs recorded in 2016 and 2020, which also witnessed an El Nino effect.

 

The report added that the nine years from 2015 to 2023 were the hottest ever, and record monthly temperatures were recorded in several months during 2023.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site glaciers are currently losing an average of about 58 billion tons of ice annually, accounting for about 5% of sea level rise, the meteorological organization predicted.

 

According to UNESCO estimates, glaciers are expected to disappear at a third of the identified glacier sites by 2050, regardless of the climate change scenario.
