Earth’s climate is heating up so rapidly that temperatures will likely surpass a level that world leaders have attempted to avert in roughly a decade, according to research released Monday.The United Nations labels the findings a “code red for mankind” At the National Center for Atmospheric Research, scientists study the atmosphere. No location appears to be safe to me… There is nothing where I can hide.”
Scientists have also lowered their estimates of the possibility of the worst climatic calamities, although not by much.Global temperatures are expected to rise in the 21st century, according to the authoritative Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change study, which says climate change is “obviously” human-caused and “unequivocal.”
Based on how much carbon dioxide emissions are reduced, all five future scenarios meet one of two standards specified in the 2015 Paris climate accord. As a result of this agreement, world leaders have been working since the late 19th century to keep global Warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit). Its top limit is determined by the global Warming that occurred in the past century and a half, which was around 1.1 degrees Celsius (2 degrees Fahrenheit).
Global Warming would exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius in each scenario by 2030 or early, according to the research.”Unless substantial reductions in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions occur in the next decades,” the research states, under three scenarios the globe would likely surpass 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) beyond pre-industrial times.
