UN WMO: La Niña Protection from Global Warming will be “Short Lived”

Essay by Eric Worrall

Send money – the UN wants “increasing investment in the basic global observing system” to monitor the global warming they expect will show up any day now.

WMO releases ‘tell-tale signs’ of extreme weather conditions around the world

Climate and Environment

From extreme floods to heat and drought, weather and climate-related disasters have affected millions and cost billions this year, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said on Friday, describing the “tell-tale signs and impacts” of intensified climate change.

The clear need to do much more to cut greenhouse gas emissions was again underscored throughout events in 2022, said the UN weather agency, advocating for strengthened climate change adaptation, including universal access to early warnings.

“This year we have faced several dramatic weather disasters which claimed far too many lives and livelihoods and undermined health, food, energy and water security and infrastructure”, said WMO chief Petteri Taalas.

While the persistence of a cooling La Niña event, now in its third year, means that 2022 will not be the warmest year on record, its cooling impact will be short-lived and not reverse the long-term warming trend caused by record levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in our atmosphere.

Early warnings

Early warnings, increasing investment in the basic global observing system and building resilience to extreme weather and climate will be among WMO priorities in 2023 – the year that the WMO community celebrates its 150th anniversary.

I’m surprised the WMO article forgot to mention all the global warming induced extreme cold the USA is experiencing this Christmas. Maybe they were worried that reminding people how cold it is might confuse their pitch for more “investment” to monitor global warming.
