"The “crazy” extreme weather rampaging around the globe in 2023 will become the
norm within a decade without dramatic climate action, the world’s leading
climate scientists have said.
The heatwaves, wildfires and floods experienced today were just the “tip of the
iceberg” compared with even worse effects to come, they said, with limitations
in climate models leaving the world “flying partially blind” into the future.
With fears that humanity’s relentless carbon emissions have finally pushed the
climate crisis into a new and accelerating phase of destruction, the Guardian
sought the expert assessments of more than 40 scientists from around the world.
They said that the rise in global temperature was entirely in line with decades
of warnings and was being boosted this year by the return of the El Niño
climate pattern. But they said that people and places were more vulnerable to
extreme weather than expected and were suffering effects never previously
experienced as climate records were shattered."
