UN climate change experts publish humanity’s ‘survival guide’


Keeping global warming below 1.5°C has become more difficult in recent years due to the continued increase in greenhouse gas emissions. On this subject said in the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). UN Secretary General António Guterres appointed this document is a “survival guide”.

The report says global warming of 1.1°C was caused by the burning of fossil fuels, an unequal and unsustainable use of energy. According to scientists, because of this, weather phenomena have become more frequent, which leads to dangerous consequences for nature and people around the world.

Intense heat waves, heavy rains and other extreme weather events further increase the risks to human health and ecosystems, experts said. “When the risks are combined with other adverse events, such as pandemics or conflicts, they become even more difficult to manage,” the environmentalists added.

The authors of the report urge action to be taken as soon as possible to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt the planet to anthropogenic climate change. IPCC Chair Hyosung Lee said the report underscores the urgency of taking more ambitious action and demonstrates that “if we act today, we can still secure a sustainable future for everyone around the world.”

The UN Secretary General, commenting on the report, noted that “the climate time bomb is ticking”. According to him, the IPCC report is a guide to disarming the climate time bomb.

In November, the United Arab Emirates will host the 28th COP28 International Climate Conference, which will examine the environmental and economic impacts of climate change as two sides of the same coin. Conference attendees will also explore solutions to help stop global warming and leave a healthy planet for future generations.

In October 2022, the journal Geophysical Research Letters published a study indicating that global warming increases the risk of near-Earth space debris due to collisions of satellites with space debris. This is due to a decrease in the density of the upper atmosphere.
