BERLIN taz | It was one of the strongest storms experienced in South-East Africa ever: cyclone Idai killed in mid-March 2019 in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Malawi more than a thousand people, made hundreds of thousands homeless, and destroyed countless fields, and thus large parts of the harvest. Still about 100,000 people living in temporary shelters.

The world meteorological organization (WMO) has issued its annual report on the state of the world's climate. In it, she highlights, among other things, the Severity of Idai, but also of the cyclones Fani in southern Asia, and Dorian in the Caribbean. The IPCC assumes that such tropical cyclones are with advancing climate change and more intense.

published recently, climate researchers new temperature records from the year 2019 for the Antarctic and Europe. This, but also the heat waves in India, Japan and Australia announced the WMO formative for the past year. Specifically for the latter, an international research team determined in the last week, that the climate change have made them twice as likely to.

Overall, the WMO paints a bleak picture. 2019 has once again brought some negative records: The seas were so warm, the concentration of Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and the sea level is as high as never before.

The year was the warmest in addition, the second, since the weather will be systematically recorded. It ended also the hottest Five-year-span at all – and the hottest decade. The other hand, fits well in the decades before, the fail since the eighties, only warmer.

The average temperature in the atmosphere at the start of the year, as measured by 1.1 degrees higher than just before the greenhouse-gas-intensive industrialization in the 19th century. Century. Global goal of climate agreement, earth rhitzung be limited to "well below two degrees" compared to pre-industrial level, according to Paris World, if possible, even at 1.5 degrees.

temperatures Rise higher, threatening the earth to be caught in a heat spiral, because of the permafrost soil thaws, and huge amounts of greenhouse gases releases. What have they promised the States in the framework of commitments for the Paris agreement, would lead to a warming of between three and four degrees.

UN chief António Guterres warned in the light of the new data for the "far-reaching climate protection to be". "We are Far from on the right path for a 1.5 degree or 2-degree target," he warned. It is not his first appeal to the governments, but it comes at a crucial time. Currently, many States are working on new commitments, such as the Paris Convention in that it provides for all the five years.

Actually, the new climate would have to be objectives in the beginning of February. On the reporting date, namely, the Marshall Islands, Surinam and Norway but had delivered only three. Informally, it is clear: most Important is what is in November for the world climate conference in the UK on the table.
