The Era of Global Warming is Over, and the New Era of Global Boiling Has Begun

Global boiling

The recent statement by the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, serves as a stark warning to the world. According to Guterres, we have now entered an “era of global boiling” in which the effects of climate change have surpassed the previous stage of global warming.

In fact, scientists have predicted that July 2023 will be the hottest month ever recorded in human history. In response to this alarming news, Guterres has called for immediate and radical action to combat climate change. He referred to the intense heatwaves in the Northern Hemisphere as a “cruel summer” which further strengthens the need for urgent action to prevent a catastrophic future.

 Urgent Climate Action Required: Humanity in the Hot Seat

Guterres stressed the urgency of dealing promptly with this looming calamity.

“Humanity is in the hot seat,” he said. “For vast parts of North America, Asia, Africa, and Europe, it is a cruel summer. For the entire planet, it is a disaster. And for scientists, it is unequivocal – humans are to blame.”

“The air is unbreathable, the heat is unbearable, and the level of fossil fuel profits and climate inaction is unacceptable. Leaders must lead. No more hesitancy, no more excuses, no more waiting for others to move first. There is simply no more time for that.”

Record-Breaking July: Global Temperatures Soar

According to recent reports, the past three weeks have seen record-breaking global temperatures. The scorching temperatures experienced in July have been so extreme that scientists predict this month will be the warmest globally on record.

These temperatures have resulted in violent weather patterns and have been attributed to the burning of fossil fuels, according to The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the EU’s Copernicus Earth observation programme.

Earth’s Temperature Exceeds 1.5°C Target 

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and Copernicus Climate Change Service have stated that Earth’s temperature has temporarily exceeded the internationally accepted target of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

While this threshold has been breached in the past, it is notable that it has now happened in the month of July, highlighting the severity and urgency of the situation. This alarming trend underscores the need for immediate and comprehensive action to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
