The year 2018 has recorded the fourth highest global average temperature since records exist, confirmed the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) today by disseminating the provisional data of its Declaration on the state of the climate.
The information collected has also allowed WMO to affirm that the 20 warmest years of news that are known correspond to the past 22 years.
Of them, the last four have been the hottest.
Scientists have clearly verified that other telltale signs of climate change persist, especially sea level rise, warming and acidification of the oceans, and the melting of sea ice and glaciers.
Likewise, the multiplication of extreme weather conditions that have caused natural disasters and a considerable number of victims and victims in different parts of the world has continued.
In detail, the WMO Declaration on the State of the World's Climate indicates that the average global temperature in the first ten months of this year exceeded by approximately 1 degree Celsius that of the pre-industrial era (1850-1900).
