The global climate is changing. And according to numerous scientific experts, nothing will be spared from its effects—no acre of land, no human being, and no animal will be completely insulated from the changes that will occur over the next century.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's latest report, issued in April 2022, warned that the world must curb the trend in rising greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 if there is any hope of meeting the Paris Agreement's goal of capping global temperature rise at 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels.

Climate change does not affect every area equally, which is as accurate globally as it is between the U.S. states. Thirty-three states have had their hottest overall years since 2010, and while the amount of warming—just a few degrees—may seem inconsequential, it's important to note just a few degrees of cooling caused past ice ages. Should humans continue to follow this current trajectory, the warming of Earth will have devastating worldwide effects.

Stacker compiled data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Centers for Environmental Information to detail the temperature changes over the past 120 years across every state except Alaska and Hawaii, where data was unavailable. Each temperature is compared to the 1901-2000 average.

Winter in this story refers to December of the preceding year through February of the current year (e.g., in 1919, winter is December 1918 to February 1919), while summer refers to June through August of each year. All temperatures are listed in Fahrenheit.

El Niño Will Push Global Temperatures 'Off the Chart' in 2023, Scientists Warn. **The return of El Niño will result in unprecedented heatwaves, making this year even hotter than 2022**.

**Why is it getting hotter every year? ›**

**Climate change**

Burning fossil fuels releases greenhouse gas, which traps heat in Earth's atmosphere. Today, the planet is warming faster than ever. This is causing serious changes to our environment.

### Is global warming going to get better? ›

Is climate change getting better or worse? **If greenhouse gas emissions are increasing — which they are, according to NPR — then technically, climate change is getting worse**. But before you lose hope and fall victim to climate doom, it's important to remember that our situation is still very complex.

**How has the climate changed over the past 10,000 years? ›**

Enormous changes in the global climate were occurring about 10,000 years ago. The great North American ice sheets began to melt rapidly about 14,000 years ago and by 7,000 years ago they were gone. As the glaciers melted the summers became much warmer, creating very different conditions for plants and animals.

**How much has the temperature risen in the last 400 years? ›**

In the past century, the temperature of the Earth has risen about **1 degree Farenheit**. Scientists, however, believe the rate of temperature increase will accelerate. Ice reflects sunlight, so as glaciers retreat, more heat gets absorbed by the Earth.

**How much hotter will world be in 100 years? ›**

Except under the most aggressive mitigation scenario studied, global average temperature is expected to warm **at least twice as much in the next 100 years as it has during the last 100 years**. Ground-level air temperatures are expected to continue to warm more rapidly over land than oceans.

**Is The Sun getting hotter? ›**

**Over the past 4.5 billion years, the Sun has gotten hotter**, but also less massive. The solar wind, as we measure it today, is roughly constant over time. There are the occasional flares and mass ejections, but they barely factor into the Sun's overall rate at which it loses mass.

**How much have temperatures risen in the last 50 years? ›**

For the last 50 years, global temperature rose at an average rate of about **0.13°C (around one-quarter degree Fahrenheit) per decade**-almost twice as fast as the 0.07°C per decade increase observed over the previous half-century.

### How much hotter has the Earth gotten since 1880? ›

Since 1880, **average global temperatures have increased by about 1 degrees Celsius (1.7° degrees Fahrenheit)**. Global temperature is projected to warm by about 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7° degrees Fahrenheit) by 2050 and 2-4 degrees Celsius (3.6-7.2 degrees Fahrenheit) by 2100.

**How much colder was it 20,000 years ago? ›**

**Will 2023 be El Niño? ›**

Since 2020, the planet has been in a cold phase (La Niña) of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) climate pattern. But that's about to change. **Heading into spring 2023, we're approaching a likely transition from La Niña to the neutral phase of ENSO**.

**Will 2024 be an El Niño year? ›**

And **the cooling process is still ongoing, gradually continuing over time as we move towards the core of the Earth.**

**What happens if the Earth keeps getting warmer? ›**

Higher temperatures are worsening many types of disasters, including storms, heat waves, floods, and droughts. A warmer climate creates an atmosphere that can collect, retain, and unleash more water, changing weather patterns in such a way that wet areas become wetter and dry areas drier.
