2022 was another year of disastrous and deadly weather and climate extremes around the world, fueled in part by human-caused climate change, the United Nations weather agency said Friday. 

Droughts, floods and heat waves affected people on every continent and cost many billions of dollars, the UN’s World Meteorological Organization said in its new report “The State of the Global Climate 2022.” Antarctic sea ice fell to its lowest extent on record, ocean heat and acidity levels reached record heights and the melting of some European glaciers was, literally, off the charts, the WMO said.

“While greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise and the climate continues to change, populations worldwide continue to be gravely impacted by extreme weather and climate events,” WMO Secretary-General Petteri Taalas said in a news release.

Taalas said that current glacier melting and sea-level rise show “we have already lost” on those two key signals of the planet’s health.
