The world is not doing enough to beat climate change. The Paris Agreement, an international agreement that aims to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels, is not being met. The IPCC’s new report found that the world is currently on track to warm by 3 degrees Celsius by the end of the century. This would have catastrophic consequences for our planet.
The IPCC report found that the world's emissions of greenhouse gases have continued to rise in recent years. In order to meet the Paris Agreement goals, global emissions need to peak by 2025 and then decline by 45% by 2030. However, the report found that current policies are insufficient to achieve these reductions.
The report also found that the impacts of climate change are already being felt around the world. These impacts include more extreme weather events, rising sea levels, and changes in agricultural yields. The report warned that these impacts will become more severe if global warming continues.
What can be done?
Climate change is a serious threat to our planet, but there are a number of things that can be done to reduce emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change. These include investing in renewable energy sources, increasing energy efficiency, reducing deforestation, and adapting to the impacts of climate change.
These are just a few things that need to be done to address the climate crisis. It is clear that we need to take action now, and that we need to do more than we are currently doing. The future of our planet depends on it.
The IPCC report is a wake-up call for the world. It shows that we need to take bold action now to address climate change. If we do not act, the consequences will be catastrophic.
