2022 was 5th-hottest year on record despite cooling La Nina conditions

The evidence is overwhelming that we have serious climate change. We can expect new record high temperatures over the next few years just from a swing from la Nina to neutral, even without the extra from el Nino.

"If we don't take it seriously and have some real action to mitigate [the trend], there are going to be deadly effects across the globe."

It is more than serious enough to warrant strong actions - stronger than we are currently seeing.



Every measure we can use shows significant warming, like Ocean Heat Content -
