Extreme Weather Events Are ‘The New Norm’

By Lauren Chalouhi

Intense weather events like strong heat waves and horrible floods are now the new normal, says the World Meteorological Organisation.

The state of the Climate announced for 2021 highlights a world that is “changing before our eyes.”

The 20 year temperature average from 2002 is now on course to go over pre-industrial levels by 1C for the first time.

Global sea levels have also risen to a new high in 2021, according to the study.

These latest figures of 2021 are getting released earlier than planned by the WMO to correspond with the start of the UN climate conference in Glasgow which is also known as COP26.
