The temperature of the Earth is constantly increasing. According to Copernicus Climate Change Service (CCCS), an international agency that monitors climate change, the earth is steadily heating up. CCCS states that the temperature in January 2020 was 0.77 degrees Celsius more than the average January temperature recorded between the years 1981 and 2000.

January 2020 has been the warmest month so far. Before this, January 2016 was the hottest month, with January 2017 being the second warmest.

In Europe, the temperature in the month of January 2020 was 3.1 degrees Celsius more than the average January temperature in the last 30 years.

The temperature in January has risen by up to 6 degrees Celsius more than the normal temperature in countries from Norway to Russia; this has shattered records of the last 30 years.

Higher than average temperatures have been recorded in many other parts of the world, including the U.S., Canada, Japan, South-East Asia and Australia.

New data reveals that the warmest seven years so far have been recorded between 2010 and 2019 and the last five years have been the hottest on Earth till now.

According to Argentina’s Weather Department, the temperature last Thursday in Antarctica, which is being recorded since 1961, was recorded as 18.3 degrees Celsius, which is a record-breaking figure and the highest temperature in Antarctica so far. Earlier, the temperature in Antarctica was recorded as 17.5 degrees Celsius in March 2015. According to a 2019 research, snow has been melting rapidly in Antarctica since 2014. 

In recent years, a terrifying scenario of natural disasters has shaken the world, whether it is forest fires in the Amazon and Australia or destructive storms in Mozambique and Barbados.

New data has added to the worries of scientists and the argument that rising temperatures constitute a state of world emergency has gained ground among climate scientists across the world. The question that is being asked is whether each country will now have to go beyond its national boundaries to fight to stop the rising temperatures.
