The UN report issued a severe warning on climate change, saying that wild weather events will worsen
Hundreds of top scientists released a devastating report on the dangers posed by man-made climate change to the world on Monday.
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released this landmark report in Geneva, calling it the “red code for mankind.”
Many changes in the world’s climate are unprecedented in thousands or even hundreds of thousands of years, and some of the changes have already begun.
Zhai Panmao of the IPCC said:
“Climate change is already affecting every region on the planet in many ways, the changes we experience will intensify with further warming.”
According to the report, there is evidence that carbon dioxide is the main driver of climate change, even if other greenhouse gases and air pollutants are also at play.
Zeke Hausfather of the Breakthrough Institute of the Global Environmental Research Center said that the 3,000-page report “provides an unprecedented level of clarity for the future of our planet.”
This report clearly states that climate change is caused by man-made and is “unambiguous”. Compared with the last release (2013), it has made more accurate and warmer predictions for the 21st century.
Helen Mumford of the non-profit research organization World Resources Institute said:
“If this IPCC report doesn’t scare you into action, it should be.” We are still obsessed with burning fossil fuels and destroying forests.
One of the most striking conclusions is that we may reach a temperature increase of 1.5°C ten years earlier than previously discovered by the IPCC. “
Nearly 200 countries have signed the Paris Climate Agreement, which aims to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) by the end of this century, and ideally not to exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit). – Industrial Age.
The report predicts that:
Climate change in all regions will intensify in the coming decades. Global warming is 1.5°C, heat waves increase, warm seasons are prolonged, and cold seasons are shortened; the report shows that when global warming is 2°C, extremely high temperatures tend to reach the critical tolerance threshold for agriculture and health.
Katharine Hayhoe, Chief Scientist of The Nature Conservancy, said:
“For more than a century, scientists have been predicting the possibility of climate change accelerating-but their warnings are often ignored. I hope this rigorous, transparent and The unprecedented urgency of this latest IPCC report will not be ignored.”
