Time is running out to limit climate change catastrophe.

Published by Ocean Generation \ October 8, 2018 10:52 am

Leading climate scientists have come together to build a landmark report for the United Nations. The results, URGENT and unprecedented change’s need to be implement now, before it is too late. Risks of severe droughts, floods, heat and mass human displacement due to poverty of millions of people are all real results for the next few years unless a global crack down is implemented immediately.

The half-degree difference could slow down our human impact on the planet. Coral reefs are dying, if not already dead. Pressure on the artic is pushing our ecosystems over the edge. The meeting brought representatives together, scrambling together to sort out this mess, some even in tears, as the severity of situation hit home.

If action isn’t taken now, by anyone and everyone. The impact on humanity will be irreversible:

  • Hundreds of million’s of people will be at risk of climate-poverty and lack of food
  • Insects needed for crop pollination, will lose their homes and die, leaving us with less food
  • Rising sea levels will displace millions of people, take homes, and put pressure on communities all around the world
  • Hurricanes, earth-quakes and tsunamis will happen more often
  • Air pollution will continue to threaten our every day lives, causing disease, early death and infertility
  • EXTREMELY HOT DAYS will happen more regularly. Heat related deaths will rise, and forest fire potential will sky rocket
  • Our oceans will struggle to provide the much needed oxygen we need, due to rising temperatures and acidity

At the current level of commitments, the world is on course for a disastrous 3C of warming. The original milestone was set at 2C. The report authors are refusing to accept defeat, believing the increasingly visible damage caused by climate change will shift opinion their way. At the end of the month they will present their report to government’s at the at the UN climate conference.
