Monday brought us great news: the world is ending. The most complete report ever by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a scientific-political organization working within the United Nations, shows that We have reached the point of no return for the disaster we are causing the planet. In the next 20 years, no matter what we do, global warming will continue to have a tremendous impact on life on Earth. Even if massive reductions in emissions begin immediately, The temperature on the planet will rise by 1.5 degrees centigrade.
The report approved by the governments of 195 countries was based on 14,000 studies and used computer models that were not available until recently. Now it is possible to say that There is no longer a shadow of doubt that it is human action that has been warming the planet since the 19th century., with the burning of fossil fuels, the destruction of forests and the resulting emissions of pentagrelic amounts of carbon dioxide and methane. The previous decade was probably the warmest in 125,000 years and the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was Never been so high in at least 20 centuries. The rate of sea level rise has doubled since 2006. That’s right: it’s doubled. The fires we see in the Northern Hemisphere are the result of hot summers since the 1950s, and heat waves have doubled in frequency since the 1980s. Yes, you read that right: they doubled. They occur every 50 years, they seem to happen every 10 years, and with global temperatures 1.5 °C higher, they will afflict about 1 billion people every 5 in 5. ocean waves, which stabilizes the climate in Europe, are slow and no one can say what effect it will have on the system as a whole.
Since heating to 1.5 degree centigrade is inevitable, there is only one thing to do stop the planet from getting even hotter. This means finding a way to prevent carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels in the atmosphere by 2050 and remove what is already in the air. Make no mistake with the official discourse that Brazil is playing its part. The country ranks among the top ten emitters of greenhouse gases along with China, the United States, the European Union, India, Russia, Japan, Indonesia, Iran and Canada..
Environmentalists can be boring and have anti-capitalism on their agenda. Hearing about the stability gives you goosebumps. but only idiots, In general, those who deny the seriousness of the covid pandemicWhat is happening on the planet is not realized and there may still be suspicions that global warming is the result of human action. It’s no longer a matter of getting emotional with a picture of a polar bear isolated on a snowflake (actually, just a metaphor, as it has always been a common occurrence) and then filling the tank with gasoline, as if everyone talked. Didn’t worry about us. We are polar bears today. The statement doesn’t contain eco-socialism or anything like that. As they say otherwise, capitalism is the only system capable of finding a solution to the trap we have created. It is the only system that can make a new industrial revolution, so that we can move forward, without creating life on earth as we know it is impossible. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report gives measure of urgency Now create other paradigms for our children, not for our grandchildren.
“There is no hope until states stop making ambitious and restrictive policy decisions”, say the scientists who signed the report. For example, an ambitious decision is taking shape in Europe: Ban on fossil fuel vehicles by 2035. There is an attempt to improve electric cars with these batteries, which are currently too boring to charge, so that their performance in terms of autonomy and speed is similar to that of gasoline-powered vehicles. It’s not impossible. This has not been done before because we are accustomed to oil, just as we have become accustomed to animal traction and steam engines..
The world is ending, but another beginning is possible, Forgive the mango which can also get scorched.
