Monday brings us good news: the world is coming to an end. Full report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a scientific-political organization working within the United Nations. We have reached the point of no return to the catastrophe that befalls the planet. In the next 20 years, no matter what we do, global warming will have a major impact on life on Earth. Although emissions immediately begin to decrease significantly, The temperature on the planet will rise by 1.5 degrees centigrade.
The report was approved by the governments of 195 countries 14,000 courses And computer models not available until recently were used. Now it can be said There is no doubt that human activity has warmed the earth since the 19th century, Burning of fossil fuels, deforestation and consequent emissions of carbon dioxide and methane in pantocrylic levels. The last decade may have been carbon dioxide levels in the warmest and atmospheres for 125,000 years It has never been this high in at least 20 centuries. The size of the oceans has doubled since 2006. That’s right: it has doubled. The fire we see in the Northern Hemisphere has been the result of summer since the 1950s, and heat waves have doubled in frequency since the 1980s. Yes, you read it again: they doubled. They occur once every 50 years and begin to occur every 10 years, with global temperatures as high as 1.5 degrees Celsius, affecting 5 out of every 5 billion people. Another bad news: Ocean currents, One of the climate stabilizers in Europe, Are slow and no one can say what the impact will be on the overall system.
Heating to 1.5 degrees centigrade is inevitable, the only thing to do Is to prevent the planet from further warming. That means by 2050, carbon dioxide will stop burning fossil fuels into the atmosphere and find a way to remove what is already in the air. Make no mistake in the official discourse, Brazil is doing its part. The country is among the top ten emitters of greenhouse gases, along with China, the United States, the European Union, India, Russia, Japan, Indonesia, Iran and Canada..
Environmental activists may be bored and anti-capitalist on their agenda. Asking about consistency makes you heartbroken. But only fools, Those who deny the severity of the Govt infection in general, Do not realize what is happening on the planet and still suspect that global warming is not the result of human activity. Getting emotional with a photo of an isolated polar bear on top of an iceberg is no longer a matter of (otherwise, a metaphor, it’s always a common occurrence) like then filling the tank with gasoline. We don’t care about everything. We are polar bears today. The report does not mention environmental socialism or anything like that. Otherwise, as they say, capitalism is the only system that can solve the trap we have created. It is the only organization that can create a new industrial revolution so that we can move forward and know that life on earth is impossible. The report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change provides a measure of urgency Create other role models, no longer for our grandchildren, but for our children.
“There is little hope until states stop making ambitious and regulatory policy decisions.”The scientists who signed the report say. For example, an ambitious decision takes shape in Europe: Ban on fossil fuel-powered vehicles by 2035. Upgrading electric cars is because these batteries are currently so boring to charge that they have the same performance as petrol-powered vehicles in terms of autonomy and speed. That is not possible. This has never been done before because we are addicted to oil, just as we are addicted to animal traction and steam engines..
The world ends, but another beginning is possible, Sorry for the common things that burn out.
