“2018 was Earth’s fourth-warmest year, EU scientists find”

“The Copernicus Climate Service (C3S), an EU-funded program, has concluded that 2018 was Earth’s 4th-warmest year on record — with the past 4 years serving as the hottest years the planet has seen since instrument records began in 1880 (and likely well before that). The big picture: With U.S. science agencies hobbled by the partial government shutdown, the new findings are the first to provide a global perspective on 2018’s temperatures and greenhouse gas emissions. While they’re in line with projections, they still underscore how severe the climate change problem is becoming.”
