  • The 20-year temperature average from 2002 is on course to exceed 1C above pre-industrial levels for the first time

  • Global sea levels rose to a new high in 2021, according to the study.

  • The study finds that the past seven years including this one are likely to be the warmest on record as greenhouse gases reached record concentrations in the atmosphere

  • It rained - rather than snowed - for the first time on record at the peak of the Greenland ice sheet

  • A heat wave in Canada and adjacent parts of the USA pushed temperatures to nearly 50C in a village in British Columbia

  • Death Valley, California reached 54.4C during one of multiple heat waves in the south-western USA

  • Months' worth of rainfall fell in the space of hours in an area of China

  • Parts of Europe saw severe flooding, leading to dozens of casualties and billions in economic losses
