The impact of global warming has started to appear not only in India and China but in the whole world. According to data published on Friday by the European Union’s Climate Monitoring Service, 2020 was the hottest year for an organization with 27 countries. The data said that the last year was the warmest year for the European Union since climate-record keeping began.
Record of temperature broken in 2020
The European Union’s ‘Copernicus Climate Change Service’ said that last year’s temperature in Europe broke the record for 2019 temperature by an increase of 0.4 degrees Celsius. The increase in temperature in the world is due to the increase in the emission of greenhouse gases, the most prominent of which is carbon dioxide. According to the data, the pre-2020 industrial period was 1.25 centigrade warmer than the temperature of 1850-1900.
How about 2021?
In fact, with the way the global environment is changing, it can be inferred that in 2021 everything is not going to be normal. The way climate change and melting of glaciers continues, it seems that 2021 can also be included in the list of hot years. In Europe too, heat is increasing year after year.
2020 was also the eighth warmest year for India
The year 2020 was the 8th warmest year in India since 1901. The India Meteorological Department said that 2016 was the hottest year recorded in India earlier. Now the question arises whether the new year, the year 2021 will show the same kind of weather or will the situation move towards something normal. The meteorological department said in a climate statement of India during 2020 that the average annual temperature in the country during the year was 0.29 degrees Celsius above normal. This figure is based on 1981–2010 data.
