Forecast suggests Earth's warmest period on record,
University of East Anglia, February 6, 2019.


“...the publication of the latest Met Office decadal forecast to 2023.”

Hottest EVER
“...the global average surface temperature for the five-year period to 2023 is predicted to be near or above 1.0 °C above pre-industrial levels, says the Met Office. If the observations for the next five years track the forecast that would make the decade from 2014 to 2023 the warmest run of years since records began. ”

Going Up
"2015 was the first year that global annual average surface temperatures reached 1.0 °C above pre-industrial levels and the following three years have all remained close to this level. The global average temperature between now and 2023 is predicted to remain high, potentially making the decade from 2014 the warmest in more than 150 years of records.”

Arctic Already Cooking…
“Averaged over the five-year period 2019-2023, forecast patterns suggest enhanced warming is likely over much of the globe, especially over land and at high northern latitudes, particularly the Arctic region.”

The Big One Coming NOW

"A run of temperatures of 1.0 °C or above would increase the risk of a temporary excursion above the threshold of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. Predictions now suggest around a 10 per cent chance of at least one year between 2019 and 2023 temporarily exceeding 1.5 °C."

Bottom Line

The observant among us have noted that all the climate models, except for the very worse, have all significantly underestimated the levels and rates of warming, let alone their effects on regional ecologies around our terresterial and oceanic, "worlds."

On the other hand, Nature and its ecosystems have proven to be a very sensitive measure of these same changes, which we can pick up by observing their distress and collapses.

The changes in the timing of seasonal transitions have been as destructive as the changes in their temperatures, and both are changing much more rapidly than, “science,” has anticipated, or that most of Nature can cope with.
