November 2020 was the hottest month on record

Last month was the warmest November on record, the European program Copernicus on climate change announced on Monday.
According to the analyzes of the Copernicus program, the temperatures of November 2020 were 0.77 degrees centigrade higher than the average of the 30 years between 1981 and 2010, and exceeded the previous record, recorded in 2016 and 2019.

The 12-month period between December 2019 and November 2020 showed 1.28 ºC higher temperatures compared to the pre-industrial era, highlighted the monthly climate balance Copernicus.

The period from 2015 to 2020 represents the six warmest years ever recorded in history, a result that brings the planet closer to the first limit established by the Paris Agreement on climate, which will turn 15 this week.

The pact, signed in 2015 by almost 200 states that pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, aims to contain temperatures rising below 2 ° C, and if possible below 1.5 ° C, to limit the devastating impact of storms, droughts and other episodes.

But the planet gains, on average, 0.2 ºC every decade since the end of the 1970s, recalls the Copernicus program.

Global warming is close to 1.2 ºC and 2020 does not seem to change the trend.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) announced last week that 2020 should be on the podium in the list of warmer years. The provisional data leave the period, at the moment, in the second position, behind only 2016, but the difference is so small that the classification may change.

When adding the new data for November, “2020 is even closer to the 2016 record”, highlights the monthly balance Copernicus.
