Arab Weather - The Copernicus Climate Change Agency, affiliated with the European Union, reported that last March, the Earth recorded a new record in monthly global temperatures, making this the tenth time in a row that monthly temperatures have recorded record numbers.

Average temperatures in March reached 14.14 degrees Celsius, exceeding the previous record set in 2016 by a tenth of a degree, according to data published by the Copernicus agency.

Temperatures are 1.68 degrees Celsius higher than they were at the end of the 19th century, the period that is used as a temperature base before increased use of fossil fuels led to a rapid increase in temperatures.

As El Niño declines, the margins by which monthly average global temperatures are exceeded should decrease, Francis noted.

Climate scientists attribute most of the record temperatures to human-caused climate change through carbon dioxide and methane emissions from burning coal, oil and natural gas.

“This trajectory will not change until the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stops rising, which means we must stop burning fossil fuels, stop deforestation, and grow our food more sustainably as soon as possible,” Francis explained.

She noted that until then, more records are expected to be broken.

Under the 2015 Paris Agreement, the world set a target of keeping temperature rise at or below 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

The Copernicus monthly temperature data is based on a slightly different measurement system than the Paris Agreement, averaged over two or three decades.
