Climate change is accelerating much faster than expected.

According to a recently released report by the United Nations Climate Panel, experts warn of the greatest dangers posed by this phenomenon, which threatens humanity’s future. Advice and solutions for dealing with it.

According to the latest report recently released by the United Nations Climate Panel, half of the world’s population is already highly vulnerable to the increasing and serious consequences of climate change, which is advancing much faster than expected.

The report warns, among other things, that it is necessary to conserve and protect between one-third and half of the planet in order to ensure a supply of food and, more importantly, fresh water in the near future.

Furthermore, environmental experts emphasized the importance of coastal cities developing plans to keep their residents safe from increasingly frequent and powerful storms, as well as rising seas.

“Adaptation helps save lives. As the effects of climate change worsen—and they will—increased investment will be critical for human survival. Delay equals death “UN Secretary-General António Manuel Guterres de Oliveira said.

“Uncontrolled carbon pollution is forcing the world’s most vulnerable to face a ferocious march toward destruction, The facts are undeniable,” the Portuguese physical engineer added.

Climate change: how to combat it

In the report, the experts also urge all governments around the world to immediately and drastically reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in order to avoid runaway global warming, as well as to work much harder to limit suffering by adapting to the conditions of a much warmer world.

Furthermore, he emphasizes that, while the world’s most populous cities can invest in cooling zones to help people during heat waves, coastal communities require new infrastructure or relocation.

“We can either plan for and implement transformation now, or it will be forced on us by climate change,” said Kristina Dahl, a climate expert at the Union of Concerned Scientists.

Finally, the report emphasizes the importance of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, as “breaking that threshold will mean irreversible damage to the entire planet.”

“Limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius will not prevent environmental, social, or economic degradation, but it will significantly reduce it. The planet has already warmed by 1.1 degrees Celsius and is expected to reach 1.5 degrees Celsius within the next two decades. Societies will not adapt well to a warming world if they do not address the problem in a socially inclusive manner, so solutions must consider social justice and include indigenous populations, minorities, and the poor “The UN climate report comes to an end.
