Only strict measures can avoid climate catastrophe: United nations

Only strict measures can avoid climate catastrophe: United nations


The United Nations’ top climate body says strict measures, including a significant reduction in fossil fuels, are needed to prevent global warming from rising 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial temperatures.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report found that the world is “rapidly advancing toward climate change.”

Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the UN, claimed that “Governments and agencies have “joined in the celebration of breaking climate commitments. The current global warming rate has more than doubled from the consensus level of 1.5 degrees in 2015 at the Paris Agreement (UNFCCC)

. In order to maintain the 1.5-degree limit, the world needs to reduce global emissions by 45 percent this decade.’’

According to the report, “The situation could change if we can decline the emission rate within this decade. It also says that governments need to plant more trees and develop technologies to absorb some of the carbon dioxides already in the atmosphere.”

The world will not allow increasing its greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 to achieve the Paris target in the next three years. If current policies continue, the 1.5-degree target will be “out of reach,” and it will be challenging to limit temperatures to 2 degrees Celsius after 2030.

Guterres blamed the government and organizations but did not name any specific country.

Anthony Blinken, US Secretary of State, said in a statement that “The report “shows that current global efforts to alleviate the climate crisis are less than necessary” and that “decisions will make” this decade.”
