Key takeaways from climate change report

2023 is the hottest year on record, the EU’s climate change service says.

‘Unprecedented’ global temperatures driven by human-caused climate change and boosted by the natural El Niño weather event were recorded by the Copernicus Climate Change Service.

It said 2023 was 0.60°C warmer than the 1991-2020 average and 1.48°C warmer than the 1850-1900 pre-industrial level.

Last year’s global average temperature of 14.98°C is 0.17°C higher than the previous highest annual value in 2016.

RTÉ’s Environment Correspondent George Lee talks through the key takeaways from the Copernicus report.
