2020 Will Be The Hottest In History

Since the beginning of 2020, records of temperature have been continuously broken even without the impact of El Nino. It is a foreshadowing that 2020 could be the hottest year in history ever recorded by meteorology.

According to The Guardian , in April 2020, the meteorological agency measured the highest temperature in the town of Qaanaaq (Greenland Island, Arctic region) at 6 degrees Celsius. Previously, in January, many places in the North Pole, there is not even snow.

In the first quarter of 2020, the thermal ground in Eastern Europe and Asia was 3.1 degrees Celsius higher than the average of many years in the same period. Many areas in the US also recorded the highest temperature in history.

The Guardian quoted the scientists as saying:

"2020 could be the hottest year in meteorology ever recorded. Although the corona virus temporarily makes the sky clearer, it can't calm the heat.”

Although there was no impact of El Nino, from the beginning of 2020, many records of temperature were continuously broken. Witnessing this phenomenon, the world scientists were extremely surprised.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a record of the heat is being recorded in 2016. At that time, the temperature soared early in the year due to the unusually intense El Nino phenomenon then quickly dropped.

The agency identified 75% of the possibility that 2020 will be a historic hot year, unprecedented globally.
Sharing the view, the Meteorological Agency of the United Kingdom (Met Office) also identified 2020 as one of the record hot years, when global temperature could increase by 1.1 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial period.

Met Office even thinks that this increase in temperature will last the warmest years for at least another year, along with the high instability of the atmosphere across the region.

Meanwhile, according to Oxford University weather expert Karsten Haustein, the COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to reducing new emissions, but the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is still a major concern. 

Mr. Haustein said that the crisis on climate change as well as the greenhouse effect has not shown any sign of decline. Emissions levels in 2020 may be reduced, but concentrations continue to rise.
