The recent La Nina weather phenomenon may have decreased the risk of 2024 breaking last year's record heat, according to Europe's climate monitor. Despite nine consecutive months of unprecedented temperatures, these levels were in line with climatologists' predictions of human-caused climate change. Factors contributing to high temperatures include natural cyclical events like El Nino and solar activity, as well as greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse gases continue to rise, and without La Nina's cooling effect, temperatures would have been even higher. A transition to neutral is expected by the end of Northern Hemisphere spring, followed by a La Nina summer. This may decrease the likelihood of 2024 becoming another record-breaking year. In February, global mean temperatures spiked after an extreme El Nino weather pattern. The Paris Agreement's 2-degree Celsius limit was breached in February, but is measured over a 20-year average. Global temperatures have been consistently rising, leading to more frequent temperature extremes. Much of the planet's excess heat from climate change is stored in oceans, acting as a "dump" for extra energy and carbon. The imbalance is accelerating, but current measurements remain within projections.
