Global Temperatures to Reach an Alarming New Record

Mashable: “The globe is set to pass a symbolic yet significant climate threshold in 2015 while careening into a new era of supercharged global warming, new data released Monday shows.”

“This year, global average surface temperatures are likely to reach 1 degree Celsius, or 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit — which is above preindustrial temperatures for the first time, according to the UK Met Office. This puts the world halfway to the internationally agreed warming target of 2 degrees Celsius, or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit.”

“The Met Office is one of four agencies in the world that maintain official global temperature records. Another of these groups, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the U.S., corroborated the UK report on Monday.”
