2017: already marked as the highest temperature recorded year

As global warming is rising, every year temperature is rising too high extremes. Today, our world stands in a place where controlling temperature has become a big deal to cope with. Climate experts have noted that this year too, temperature and climate change is happening continuously. Artic heat waves are rising the temperature of the Arctic Ocean. On the other hand, Antarctica is under danger zone due to its melting icebergs. Considering the overall effect, the high rise in temperature is continuously pushing World’s existence to the danger zone.

The World Meteorological Organisation(WMO) have informed that drastic changes have been noticed in the climate condition which makes this point clear that, if now the climate change is not controlled, it might lead to greater danger in future.

“We are now in a truly unchartered territory,” David Carlson, head of the World Climate Research Programme, said in a release from the WMO.

According to 2016 reports, last year was recorded as the warmest temperature with all the ice melting incidents happening at the highest points. But this year has broken all records of last year.

Compared to the 1961-1990 reference period, 2016 was 0.83 degrees C warmer than the average. It was around 1.1C above the pre-industrial period and at 0.06C just a fraction warmer than the previous warmest year record in 2015.

“This increase in global temperature is consistent with other changes occurring in the climate system,” said WMO Secretary-General, Petteri Taalas.

This report confirms that the year 2016 was the warmest on record – a remarkable 1.1 (degrees Celsius) above the pre-industrial period, which is 0.06 (degrees Celsius) above the previous record set in 2015,” Petteri Taalas, WMO secretary-general, said in a news release.

According to the reports, for thrice this year, Arctic Circle has already witnessed polar equivalent to heatwaves. There were days when the melting points were nearest to a damagable condition.

According to the reports, “This increase in global temperature is consistent with other changes occurring in the climate system. Globally averaged sea surface temperatures were also the warmest on record, global sea levels continued to rise, and Arctic sea-ice extent was well below average for most of the year.”

The reports have also claimed that the climate change of 2016 was substantially influenced by the Nino Weather conditions. Both warm and cold winds cover up the entire place. Since warm winds stay in the lower part of the atmosphere, it substantially increases the climatic warmth and hence increases the temperature.
