Meteorologists warn: 2022 will be one of the hottest years

Only a few days separate us from 2022 and reports for this year have begun to be published.

One of these reports is that of the UK’s national weather service, the Met Office, which suggests that next year will continue as one of the hottest years on Earth.

Temperatures next year will be 1.09 degrees Celsius above average. So says a report by the UK’s national weather service, the Met Office. Adam Scaife, head of forecasts at the Met Office, said the results showed that greenhouse gases were heating the weather at an increasing rate. The forecast is calculated based on the main drivers of the global climate, but does not include unexpected events such as major volcanic eruptions. This change could cause global crop yields to fall by about 30% and food demand to grow rapidly. While 2022 is 1.96 degrees above the 1850-1900 averages, it is expected to be even colder than January-September 2021.

Harvest yield will decrease by 30%

According to a study by Bloomberg, rising temperatures could cause global crop yields to fall by about 30% and food demand to grow rapidly. Extreme and variable temperatures also directly affect human health; increases the mortality rate from myocardial infarction and myocardial infarction. Doug Smith, climate expert at the Met Office, says a rise of approximately 2 degrees in the global average temperature masks the fact that there are significant temperature differences around the world.

Rising global temperature

According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) report “Global Climate State 2021” published in November, extreme weather events such as strong heat waves and devastating floods are now the “new normal” of the world. According to the study, the average 20-year temperature after 2002 is on the way to passing 1 degree Celsius compared to pre-industrial times. Sea levels and the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere also reached record levels in 2021.

With the effect of greenhouse gas concentration on global temperature, the increase in global temperature in the period January-September 2021 reached 1.09 degrees Celsius compared to the average temperature in the period 1850-1900. According to the report, with rising temperatures on the planets, the world is heading towards an unprecedented place. The report says the last 7 years, including 2021, are likely to record the highest recorded warmth.
