If humanity’s greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase, the average temperature of the Earth’s lower atmosphere could rise more than 4°C (7.2°F) by the end of the 21st century. But what does a rise in the global average temperature really mean? How would we experience it on a daily basis?
Weather presenters on TV and radio regularly inform us about the temperatures and other weather conditions that we feel on our skin and plan our day around. Because they know how to explain weather and climate in a useful and interesting way, WMO encourages weather presenters to also reflect climate change science in their reports.
