While this breach is temporary, it signals an escalating trend towards a long-term situation where the impacts of the climate crisis may become challenging, if not impossible, to reverse.
According to The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) scientific evidence continues to show that human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels have warmed Earth’s surface and its ocean basins, which in turn have continued to impact Earth’s climate.
Burgess’s preliminary data, posted on X, indicates a global average temperature 2.07 degrees Celsius above 1850-1900 levels, emphasizing the urgency of addressing climate change.
