The proportion of people destroyed at the end of the century is unusually high

The process of climate change is becoming more and more serious. The time has come for people to take even more drastic action to protect our planet.

People are making great efforts to find ways to control and curb global climate change. But it seems that we will have to work even harder, especially when American experts recently revealed the possibility of human destruction after 100 years, with a rate rated " completely Feasibility".

In 100 years, the Earth's temperature will rise, causing uncontrollable natural disasters.

Specifically, meteorological experts from the University of California believe that within the next 100 years, the Earth's temperature may increase by 3 ° C and thereby cause uncontrollable natural disasters. However, it is even possible that the number is 5 ° C, and then the consequences for life on Earth will not be easy to answer.

And that ratio is 1:20, or 5%.

It is known that the incidence of aviation accidents occurs . 1 parts per million, and it still happens.

Specifically, Professor Ramanathan's team tried to analyze the actual situation that our planet is facing. Then with calculations, they will know what will happen when the temperature rises in the future.

According to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change signed in 2015, the goal of existing countries is to keep the global warming temperature below 2 ° C compared to before the Industrial Revolution. But according to Ramanathan, even when that goal is reached, the 1.5 ° C increase still falls into danger for people and nature.

With 3 ° C, natural disasters will be uncontrollable. And if it's 5 ° C, the consequences are unpredictable, when it poses too much risk for the existence of humans and natural animals.

So what can people today do to this future? Professor Ramanathan and his colleague Yangyang Xu proposed three solutions, including all three to achieve the UN goal set out in the 2015 Paris Agreement.

  • Drastically prevent the use of fossil fuels.
  • By all means reducing the load of short-term polluting gases such as methane, HFC . They are believed to be the culprits of 7 million cases of air poisoning in the world, and can boost the speed of global warming. more efficient than CO2.
  • Isolation, separating CO2 from the air.

A few months ago, six famous scientists, including the former UN climate chief - Christiana Figueres and American physicist - Stefan Rahmstorf agreed to give a warning to everyone: they We will only have 1000 days before climate change hits an irreversible threshold. And if that happens, perhaps the rate of human destruction will rise even higher.

Earth has changed a lot because of climate change.

The study is published in the PNAS scientific journal.
