In March, the World Records a New Temperature Record “on Borrowed Time.”

According to Europe’s climate monitoring organization, the world just saw its warmest March on record, marking the tenth consecutive month of unusually high temperatures. Sea surface temperatures also reached a record high.

On Tuesday, the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) of the European Union reported that the average temperature for March was 14.14 degrees Celsius (57.9 degrees Fahrenheit), which was 0.1 degrees higher than the previous record set in 2016. Additionally, the month’s temperature was 1.68C (35F) higher than the average March during the pre-industrial era’s reference period of 1850–1900.

Throughout the month, temperatures rose above average over vast swaths of the earth, from Antarctica to Greenland and portions of Africa.

It shatters its heat record for the tenth time in a row and became the hottest 12-month period ever recorded, rising 1.58C (34.8F) over pre-industrial averages.

According to Burgess, the 1.5C (2.7F) threshold set by world leaders in Paris 2015 has not been exceeded, despite the current temperatures, but “the reality is that we’re extraordinarily close, and already on borrowed time.”

The hottest year on Earth since global records date back to 1850 was 2023 In the early 2030s, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of the United Nations has issued a warning that the global temperature will likely surpass 1.5C. Rather of being measured in years, the goal is expressed in decades.
