Dear Editor,

According to a NASA analysis, the Earth’s average surface temperature in 2022 was the fifth warmest year compared to last six decades. According to researchers from NASA’s; global temperatures in 2022 were about 1 degrees Celsius higher than the average for the baseline period continuing the planet’s long-term warming trend. This warming trend is alarming. The effects of our changing climate are already being felt: Cyclones are becoming more powerful, forest fires are getting worse, droughts are wreaking havoc, and sea levels are rising especially in Asia.Since the start of modern recordkeeping in 1880 by NASA, the last nine years have been the warmest on record. The simple reason for the warming trend is that human activities continue to pump enormous amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

Following a brief decline in 2020 caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, human-caused greenhouse gas emissions have increased as per reports.Scientists from NASA and other countries recently found that carbon dioxide emissions in 2022 were the highest ever recorded. Using the Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation instrument, which was launched to the International Space Station last year by NASA it is discovered that a few methane super-emitters, another potent greenhouse gas was released to atomsphere heavily.

Scientists warns that if global warming continues the rainfall and tropical storm intensity will surely increase, along with the severity of droughts and the impact of storm.Therefore stringent actions needed around the globe to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for top notch future.
