Climate change service Copernicus reports record temperatures for March. Compared to pre-industrial times, the temperature was now 1.68 degrees higher.

March was also warmer worldwide than any previous March since records began. The global average temperature for the past twelve months (April 2023 to March 2024) is the highest on record and is 1.58 degrees above the pre- industrial average. However, that does not mean that the Paris 1.5 degree target has been missed, as longer-term average values ​​are being looked at.
