New Study Supports Evidence , That Summer 2023 Was the , Hottest in Over 2 Millennia.
According to an analysis of tree rings going all the
way back to year one, 2023 was the hottest summer
in the Northern Hemisphere in over 2000 years. .
According to an analysis of tree rings going all the
way back to year one, 2023 was the hottest summer
in the Northern Hemisphere in over 2000 years. .
HuffPost reports that scientists analyzed over
10,000 tree rings to determine temperature
levels dating back two millennia.
The team from the University of Cambridge and the
Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz found that the
summer of 2023 was 2.2 degrees Celsius above average.
The temperature from June to August 2023 was
compared to average temperatures from the
same period between year one and 1890. .
When you look at the long sweep
of history, you can see just how
dramatic recent global warming is. , Ulf Büntgen, Cambridge Department of Geography, via HuffPost.
2023 was an exceptionally hot
year, and this trend will continue
unless we reduce greenhouse
gas emissions dramatically, Ulf Büntgen, Cambridge Department of Geography, via HuffPost.
HuffPost reports that 2023 saw global record-breaking
ocean temperatures, widespread wildfires
across the continent and scorching heat in cities.
It’s true that the climate is always
changing, but the warming in 2023,
caused by greenhouse gases, is additionally
amplified by El Niño conditions, so we end up
with longer and more severe heat waves
and extended periods of drought, Jan Esper, professor at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz
and lead author of the paper, via HuffPost.

When you look at the big picture,
it shows just how urgent it is
that we reduce greenhouse
gas emissions immediately, Jan Esper, professor at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz
