The United Nations expresses concern about climate change
According to the United Nations, it is not possible to issue any warning in the way climate change is happening now.
A report by the United Nations notes that many countries are failing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, global warming is increasing.
Incidentally, climate-related disasters are increasing due to climate change. Climate-related costs have risen to $200 million per day over the past five decades.
Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the UN, has commented that this year’s floods in Pakistan, heatwaves in Europe, and droughts in the US and parts of China are due to the failure of countries to tackle climate change and curb fossil fuel production.
The report also notes that surveys conducted by various UN agencies have noted that many countries have not complied with the Paris Agreement‘s decisions on greenhouse gas emissions. The report also states that greenhouse gas emissions have increased rather than decreased in many cases.
Last year, nearly 200 countries gathered at the United Nations’ World Climate Conference COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland, and took decisions on reducing methane gas pollution, deforestation, and coal financing.
However, the published report says four times more reductions are needed to limit global warming to 2°C and seven times more to limit global warming to 1.5°C than the World Climate Conference for 2030. Scientists say unplanned industrialization will increase the global temperature by 1.5 degrees Celsius in the next five years.
The report notes that a large number of tipping points are likely to occur as a result of a significant change in climate if global warming targets set by the international agreements fail to reduce. Tipping points include the loss of ice sheets in Greenland and West Antarctica and the possibility of Coral reef death.
