Current UN climate forecasts are outdated – this conclusion, scientists have come recently. The fact that greenhouse gases are actually heated the Earth’s surface faster than previously thought. What is expected in the future, is it possibleto avoid the global warming, read more in an article.
Leading research centers in France determined that the beginning of 22 century the average temperature on the planet will rise by 7.0 degrees Celsius in relation to preindustrial levels. This slow but steady surge surely happen if carbon dioxide emissions remain at current levels.
To make you understand why current climate forecasts have lost relevance: before that, a report of the Intergovernmental Group by an expert on climate change predicted a temperature increase of 5.0 degrees Celsius in a similar scenario.
Already, an increase in temperature on Earth by 1 degree provokes new shocks for all the inhabitants of the planet: droughts, floods, tropical cyclones. Especially dangerous cyclones – they become more destructive due to rising sea levels.
But back to the climate predictions. Scientists are using the latest technology found that increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere warms the planet much stronger than assumed in earlier calculations. If we don’t take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, then by 2100, it may disappear from 3 to 99 per cent of the permafrost on the planet.
The main problem in the fight against global warming today – the political differences between the countries. Every state seeks to achieve the greatest political influence, oblivious to the fact that we all live together on our planet. If many European countries have already begun to fight global warming at all levels of the public consciousness, this is unfortunately not true for many other countries, including Russia, which is ranked 4th by carbon dioxide emissions per year.
