In the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
According to an assessment , greenhouse gases accelerate the unmistakable course of the world to ‘extreme’ climates. In particular, the widespread use of fossil fuels causes the Earth to warm up every year.
The lack of attention given to the climate crisis has caused the problem to grow. This is the reason for the increasing forest fires, drought and floods every year. Earth is this hot for the first time in 125 thousand years and experts always add warnings to their caveats. Unfortunately, the biggest role in taking action falls on governments with the power to make big change. That’s why the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change continues its work.
The world is experiencing record changes
The modern society’s need for fossil fuels, which we cannot prevent, has accelerated the warming of the world in two thousand years. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says the situation will always get worse as long as greenhouse gas emissions continue at the same rate, emphasizing that the future of the planet depends on the choices of today’s people.
The surface temperature of the Earth increased by 1.1 °C compared to measurements made in the middle of 1850-1900. Such an increase had not been seen since the Ice Age, according to calculations. The report issued by the IPCC also included the issue of how much the temperature increase could accelerate if greenhouse gas emissions continue at a one-to-one rate. According to the report If we continue like this, there will be an increase of 3 °C at the end of the 21st century.This number is the most balanced assumption by experts. All of the claims are in the middle of 2.5-4 °C. In the report published in 2013, these assumptions were in the middle of 1.5-4.5 °C.
The rapidly rising temperature of the Earth has affected life on the planet in many different ways. Of course, the poles were also included in this. The extent of the glaciers that covered the seas in the last 10 years was less than it had been in millennia. The rate of decline of glaciers has increased more than it has in 2,000 years. The temperature of the oceans It had never increased so much in 11 thousand years.
It is hoped that the report will lead to the climate summit where 195 countries will participate.
A report compiled by more than 200 scientists and approved by 195 governments in an online meeting last week aims to make calculations about climate change, mitigate it, and create a lifestyle that adapts to it. The report, which was issued about 3 months before the climate peak to be held in Scotland, will take sides on this hill. Countries at the top will give words to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and we hope that they will keep their promises and carry out extensive work.
Although this degree of warming of the planet is caused by human beings, it is quite natural that it warms up to a certain extent. Therefore, even if human-induced climate change is prevented, we will continue to see some effects related to warming. One of them is sea level. Even if the temperature increase is fixed at 1.5 °C, as determined on the panel, the warming will continue at an obvious rate. The glaciers will melt and sea level will rise by 3 meters over the next 2,000 years. Even if the increase is fixed at 2 °C, this measurement will reach 6 meters. According to the report, what is valuable is that the glaciers do not collapse rapidly and there are no sudden sea level rises.
According to the IPCC, it is still in our hands to reverse the significant climate change consequences other than such irreversible changes. For this reason, governments should act on this issue as soon as possible. they need to take immediate and joint decisions.
