World Faces Dire Climate Changes

World Faces Dire Climate Changes

World faces dire climate changes, according to a new major scientific study.

And it is upon shortly.

By the 2030 hundreds of millions of people will be affected.

And that date falls well within the lifetime of many people alive today.

It is based on current levels of greenhouse gas emissions.

The report says there is a great risk of extreme drought, wildfires, floods and food shortages for hundreds of millions of people.

The report comes from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

It says the planet will reach the crucial threshold of 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels by as early as 2030.

“The next few years are probably the most important in our history,” says Debra Roberts, an environmental scientist and one of the report’s lead authors.

Already, the average global temperature has risen by 1 degree Celsius since the 19th Century.

This year it’s the hottest it’s been in 120,000 years.

And here is how to understand the UN climate report.

The effects of warming the Earth beyond 1.5 degrees Celsius will be drastic.

Here is what the best available science says we can expect in a warmer world predicted by the new report.

The news site Mashable has summarized six key findings.

Prepare for more extremely hot days.

An ice-free Arctic.

Melting of massive ice sheets.

Coral Devastation.

Rain, rain, rain.

The poor get poorer.

But many skeptics will try to disparage the UN findings.

But the reality is that in 2018 the world saw climate changes wrecking the world environment.

And it wasn’t in the world only.

It happened in Canada’s own backyard.

British Columbia dealt with severe wildfires intensified by climate change

And here is how to understand the UN climate report.

“Limiting warming to 1.5 C is possible within the laws of chemistry and physics but doing so would require unprecedented changes,” says Jim Skea, a leading IPCC scientist.
