Los Angeles. According to an analysis released by the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the average temperature of the Earth’s surface is set to rise in 2022 along with 2015 as the fifth warmest year on record. Scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), a leading center for climate modeling, reported on Thursday that global temperatures in 2022 are expected to exceed the average of NASA’s baseline period (1951-1980), continuing Earth’s long-term warming trend. was 1.6 °F (0.89 °C) higher.
“This heat trend is dangerous,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson. “Our warming climate is already making a mark: wildfires are intensifying; The storms are getting stronger; Drought is wreaking havoc and sea levels are rising.” He said, “NASA is deepening our commitment to play our part in addressing climate change.
Our Earth system observatory will provide cutting-edge data to support our climate modelling, analysis and predictions to help humanity cope with our planet’s changing climate.” According to NASA, the past nine years have been the warmest years since modern record-keeping began in 1880.
This means that in 2022 the Earth was about 2 degrees Fahrenheit (about 1.11 degrees Celsius) warmer than the average for the end of the 19th century. “The reason for the warming trend is that human activities continue to add enormous amounts of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, and the long-term planetary effects will continue,” said GISS director Gavin Schmidt.
