The National Centers for Environmental Protection has confirmed that on July 3, Monday marked a scorching milestone, with the average global temperature hitting a record-breaking 17.01°C (62.62°F)
Scientists attribute this alarming rise to the combined effects of human-induced climate change and the resurgence of El Niño, a weather pattern notorious for global temperature spikes every few years.
As human activity continues to drive up Earth’s surface temperature, we face the consequences: wildfires, flooding, and food scarcity. The World Meteorological Organization warns that the return of El Niño in 2023 will further intensify global temperatures, mirroring the scorching year of 2016.
It’s a stark reminder that urgent action is needed to combat climate change and protect our planet.
