Global Warming

Dramatic Rise in Average Global Temperatures

An increase of 2°C compared to the average temperature in the pre-industrial era is considered a threshold for catastrophic change. For this reason, the international community has recognized that global warming must be kept below 2°C. The average global temperature today is 0.85°C higher than it was in the late 19th century. Each of the last three decades has been warmer than any previous decade since records began in 1850. For the world's leading climate scientists, human activities have almost certainly been the main cause of global warming since the mid-20th century (; 2020).
