Black Coral Inc. Global Climate Watch What Can We Expect in 2024?

Future changes are expected to include a warmer atmosphere, a warmer and more acidic ocean, higher sea levels, and larger changes in precipitation patterns.

Fossil fuels, carbon dioxide, and various greenhouse gas emissions have made climate change a more predominant problem in our society, and it has given climate change the power to ultimately impact the way we approach sustainable business and daily lifestyle habits – such as by paying more attention to the global average temperature and ways to reduce emissions. Think of planet Earth like a person who is out and about in a winter storm wearing a heavy winter jacket. Now, imagine that the Earth is still wearing that jacket and isn't allowed to take it off – and the weather suddenly changes from winter to summer… a toasty summer, at that.


That's how the Earth feels due to global warming – suffocating in heat and unable to find any immediate relief. Global warming is due to the burning of fossil fuels that create greenhouse gas emissions and trap the sun's heat and provoke temperatures to rise. Changes in the Earth's climate such as sea level rise, seasonal snow cover, ocean acidification, sea ice, and ice sheets would all refer to climate change.


Previously to 2023 there was a 93% chance that one of the years between 2022 and 2026 will be the warmest year to date; breaking the previous record held by 2016. This has already happened in summer 2023, with multiple record-breaking temperatures around the world having been recorded. This proves the previous forecast that the average global temperature for the five year period between 2022 and 2026 is projected to be higher than the previous five year period between 2017 and 2021.


The worst projection for climate change in 2024, is that the chance for the average global temperature to rise above 1.5°C has increased to almost 60% for the t year period between 2024 and 2026.The Met Office said 2023 is almost certainly the warmest on record and 2024 will be even warmer. The average global temperature for 2024 is forecast to be between 1.34C and 1.58C above the average for the pre-industrial period of 1850-1900, it said. A strong El Niño in the Pacific Ocean is coinciding with a similarly strong climate pattern in the Indian Ocean, suggesting South-East Asia and Australia will soon experience heat, drought and wildfires.


In the Sahel region of Africa temperatures are climbing at a rate 1.5 times faster than in other parts of the world, with projections indicating a rise of 2- 4.3°C by 2080. Already, Niger loses 100,000 to 120,000 hectares of arable land to soil erosion and desertification each year.


A proposed agricultural unification to unite to feed the area using new and old technology changing crops and utilizing solar powered atmospheric water generation and desalinization pipelines to grow crops and expand a no tariff, inter-African food trade in the Sahel has been discussed by 4 nations. A Rail Line and also an international highway have been considered to transport goods is proposed that will be protected by a mobile international patrol to safeguard goods and expand the market potential of food crops!
