In the 2021 Global Climate Situation report published by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), data on last year’s greenhouse gas compression, sea level increase, ocean temperature and ocean acidification rates were shared.

The report stated that these 4 climate change indicators in the world rose to the highest levels since 1850-1900, before the industrial era, last year.

The report, which reiterates that the last 7 years is the 7 warmest years since before the industrial era, noted that last year’s high global temperature La Nina climate event was effective.

“Our climate is changing before our eyes”

WMO Secretary General Petteri Taals, who was quoted in the report, warned that the global temperature level could rise above the last 7 years in the coming years and said, “Our climate is changing before our eyes. The heat caused by human-induced greenhouse gas emissions will warm our planet for generations.”

Taals stressed that sea level rise, ocean temperature and acidification will last for centuries unless unnecessary carbon emissions are stopped.

In the report published by the organization at the beginning of the year, it was found that the average global temperature recorded in 2021 was 1.11 degrees Celsius higher than the average temperature in the years 1850-1900 before the industrial period.

In the Greenhouse Gas Bulletin published last year, it was stated that the density of carbon dioxide, one of the greenhouse gas types, reached 413.2 particles per million in 2020, which was recorded as the highest annual increase since 2011 and 149 percent higher than before the industrial era.
