I would be grateful if you publish this graph, published by the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting.

It shows the change in global surface air temperatures from 1940 to 2023. Graphs for each year are superimposed on each other the earlier ones in blue or purple at the bottom, successive years becoming hotter and hence rising up the graph.

The top heavy red line is the air temperature for 2023.

Note how from June 2023 this graph has separated from the others, and made a marked leap upwards. Is this not alarming? It shows that things are now moving very rapidly< and that we are losing any possibility to control the future of the climate. It certainly gives the lie to those who would have us believe that climate change is not happening. I find this terrifying.
