WMO's State of Climate 2023 Report: Record-breaking Heat and Environmental Concerns

The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) has just released its latest #StateOfClimate report, painting a concerning picture of the planet's health. According to the report, 2023 marked the hottest year ever recorded, shattering records across various environmental indicators.


In a year marred by extreme weather events, records were not just broken but surpassed for greenhouse gas levels, ocean heat and acidification, sea level rise, Antarctic sea ice cover, and glacier retreat. Heatwaves, floods, droughts, wildfires, and intensifying tropical cyclones wreaked havoc worldwide, disrupting lives and causing billions of dollars in economic losses.

The report confirmed that 2023 saw the global average near-surface temperature soar to 1.45 °Celsius above the pre-industrial baseline, making it the warmest year on record. Moreover, it marked the warmest decade ever documented.


These findings underscore the urgent need for action to address climate change and its far-reaching impacts. As we grapple with the consequences of a warming planet, initiatives like our Net Zero service become increasingly vital. By collaborating and taking proactive steps to reduce carbon footprints, we can work towards a more sustainable future for generations to come.
