All the world’s glaciers are melting very fast

All the world’s glaciers are melting very fast

The world’s glaciers have been melting rapidly over the past year, and the opportunity to take effective action to protect them has been missed. This information was informed in a new report recently published by the United Nations. According to a UN report, climate change indicators have again reached record highs.

According to the United Nations World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the past eight years have been the warmest in the world. Concentrations of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide have reached new highs.

WMO’s annual climate review shows that Antarctic sea ice levels have reached record lows. In addition, Europe’s glaciers are melting so much that many are disappearing.

Sea levels are also rising at record levels due to climate change. From 2013 to 2022, the sea level is rising by an average of 4.62 millimeters per year, double that of 1993 to 2002. A rise in sea surface temperature has also been recorded.

The 2015’s Paris Agreement calls for efforts to keep global temperatures below 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of this century. According to the WMO report, the global average temperature in 2022 was 1.15 degrees Celsius, higher than the average from 1850 to 1900. Global temperatures have not been kept und. “Extreme weather caused by greenhouse gas emissions could continue until 2060,” said WMO chief Petri Talas. We have already emitted so much greenhouse gas that it will take decades to get through the steps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions can’t control despite La Niña conditions prevailing in the last eight years.

Researchers found an average of 1.3 meters of ice melting in 40 glaciers worldwide, more than in the last decade. Thirty meters have thinned since 1970.

The Alps have the most glaciers in Europe. This is attributed to less snowfall in winter and wildfires from May to September.

“We have lost the battle against the glacier,” Talas said because the nakedness of our carbon dioxide has become visible. Last summer, the plan showed 6.2 percent of glaciers melting, a record so far.

But Talas also offered some words of hope. He said the fight against climate change is still becoming affordable. Eco-friendly fuels are becoming cheaper than fossil fuels. In addition, the world is on the way to develop better methods to prevent climate change.

Talas said the 2014 forecast was for global warming to increase by 3 to 5 degrees. But we now have to contend with 2.5 to 3 degrees. A target of 1.5 degrees is achievable. Doing so would be good for the global economy and people.

Talas also said that 32 countries worldwide have reduced greenhouse emissions, and their economies are growing.
