Global climate change report notifies of huge climacteric as soon as 2040. A new report from the United Nations’ scientific panel on climate change describes that Governments around the world must be prepared of the immediate consequences of climate change.
All nations will need to take rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented actions to cut their carbon emissions over the next decade and face the challenge of extreme levels of global warming.
The report, issued on Monday by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says, will see never-seen-before effects of global warming — worsening floods, food shortages and wildfires as well as a mass dwindling of coral reefs as early as 2030.
“This is concerning because we know there are so many more problems if we exceed 1.5 degrees C global warming, including more heatwaves and hot summers, greater sea level rise, and, for many parts of the world, worse droughts and rainfall extremes,” explains Andrew King, a lecturer in climate science at the University of Melbourne.
If greenhouse gas emissions continue at the current rate, the plant will reach the crucial threshold of 1.5 degrees Celsius by the mentioned period, according to the authors.
But while they suggest that to prevent our planet, global net emissions of carbon dioxide must be reduced by 45% from 2010 levels by 2030 and reach “net zero” around 2050. The researchers say that this is technically possible if energy, industry, buildings, transportation, and cities take the required efforts
“Every extra bit of warming matters, especially since warming of 1.5 degrees C or higher increases the risk associated with long-lasting or irreversible changes, such as the loss of some ecosystems,” warns Hans-Otto Pörtner, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group II.
