2018 Was the 4th Hottest Year on Record, More Heat Expected in the Next Five Years

2018 Was the 4th Hottest Year on Record, More Heat Expected in the Next Five Years
An international group of scientists and meteorologists compiled the report, which shows that 2018 was the 4th hottest year ever recorded. While this might seem like a glimmer of hope to some, scientists warn: more heat is on the way in the upcoming five years and with it – possible new record highs.

The average temperature in 2018 was 14.69 degrees Celsius (58.42 degrees Fahrenheit). This is 0.79 degrees Celsius (1.42 degrees Fahrenheit) hotter than the average temperature in the 20th century. Most European countries registered 2018 as their hottest year, some breaking records that stretch back all the way to the 1880s. Other regions experienced a bit cooler temperatures, but do not let this fool you, scientists warn. The weather variations occur all the time, but the general trend is on the rise relentlessly. A German scientist said that those, who are denying the warming, also deny the laws of physics.

Warming temperatures caused massive natural disasters across the world. Hurricanes Michael and Florence, as well as fierce wildfires caused deaths of hundreds of people and the loss of billions of dollars.

Meteorological services conduct research and climate change regularly. So, last year was one of the hottest, but British experts recommend everyone to buy air conditioners, as the next 5 years will set new records. Yahoo! News says that agencies from around the world conducted several different studies, but they all acknowledged that the temperature last year took only 4th place. U.S. experts said that the average temperature last year reached 58.5 degrees (14.70 Celsius). This is 1.40 degrees (0.77 Celsius) more than the average temperature in the last century. Some European countries had the highest temperatures in the last 100-120 years.

Climate scientists from NOAA and NASA said that in the next few years, the average temperature will increase and even set new records. “The latest studies show slight fluctuations in the weather, but the warming will continue and the temperature will rise every year. Air conditioners sellers will become rich,” Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute said.

The British Meteorological Administration states that the temperature will increase up to 59.5 degrees (15.29 Celsius) in the next 5 years.
