Another record-hot year expected in 2024 due to El Nino, severe climate change, scientists warn

Leading climate scientists are issuing a stark warning that 2024 is on track to become another record-breaking year for global temperatures.

This prediction comes amid the compounding effects of the El Nino weather phenomenon and the ongoing rise in global emissions intensifying climate change.

Increasing temperatures are leading to intensifying extreme weather events, with heat waves, droughts, floods and other disasters claiming tens of thousands of lives last summer across the globe.

Reducing emissions of greenhouse gases through better transport, food and energy use choices can result in very large gains for health, particularly through reduced air pollution, according to WHO.
