2020 ties with 2016 as world’s hottest year on record

The EU’s Copernicus Climate Change Service said that 2020 tied with 2016 as the world’s warmest year on record. In 2020, temperatures globally were 1.25 degrees Celsius higher than in pre-industrial times. The Arctic and northern Siberia continued to warm more quickly than the planet. The year also saw the highest temperature ever recorded (54.4 degrees Celsius in the Mojave Desert).

Good. I have no interest in living in an ice age, and neither should anyone else. As the earth warms, farming seasons will extend into the spring and fall and planting regions will expand north and south. Every living thing on this planet needs warmth, light, and water to survive and flourish. Warmer climate means more plant life which means more food which means less starvation for every species. It also means less harsh winters which is one of the deadliest natural phenomenon in existence. Climate change is a normal, natural, and healthy part of the Earth's life cycle, and we humans, for the most part, didn't even become a civilized society until after the end of the last great ice age. Humans especially need the warmth - we are tropical mammals after all, we were not built to live in places like Europe, or most of North America or Asia. If mankind has had any hand in extending the tropical period, and I don't think we have, we should be celebrating.

Not counting the last 4 interglacial periods which were much warmer.

Thank goodness. So we are finally moving away from the little ice age that officially ended in 1860. Just don't understand why they are pretending that its a bad thing. Ice ages suck
