26 Feb RED ALERT ON NEW UN REPORT
A new UN report has lit the red alert for the passivity of countries against climate change, it warns that, with the current commitments of the great powers, such as the United States, China, India or Europe, it will only be possible to reduce this decade 1% the emissions of the gases that are now reheating the Earth’s climate.
UN scientists already demand a 45% cut in emissions by 2030 and thus be able to comply with what was signed in the Paris Agreement to prevent the worst impacts of climate change.
This is an ultimatum from the UN to the countries that pollute the atmosphere the most, such as the United States, which has re-entered the “Paris Agreement” after the exit ordered by Donald Trump or China since their inaction will continue to thaw the poles to at a historic rate, the sea level will rise one meter and losses due to extreme meteorological phenomena, such as the storm Filomena, will exceed 100,000 million euros a year in Europe alone, 10 times more than now.
The main problem lies in the cuts in the emissions of the gases that are overheating the Earth, because, according to this new UN report, with the current commitments it will only be possible to reduce them by 1% within nine years, when scientific reports demand and a 45% reduction to curve the worst impacts of climate change.
The UN has also just published the report that analyzes the contributions that each country has made to comply with the Paris Agreement, whose basic objective is to limit the increase in global temperature by 2 ° C (preferably 1.5 ° C), to By the end of the century, this shows that only 75 countries have communicated new commitments to reduce their CO2 emissions, which represents only 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
Time is short for the work and the impact that is sought to be achieved, The countries must get going and prepare a management that really generates a change, since the last 4 years have been the hottest on record, it is time to face the problem and find a solution there is no time for doubts.
