We’re going through an ongoing climate crisis, and it’s probably going to get worse. There’s a new report showing the state of the Earth, and let us tell you, this is no joke. The updates are horrifying, and we need to change something.
Researchers stated: “We are nearing or have already crossed tipping points associated with critical parts of the Earth system, including the West Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets, warm-water coral reefs, and the Amazon rainforest. Given these alarming developments, we need short, frequent, and easily accessible updates on the climate emergency.”
Scientists have published a report in which they were warning us about the climate emergency we’re facing. And after two years from the publication, nothing has changed for the better. In fact, it’s getting worse. That three leading greenhouse gases – carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide have set the record for atmospheric concentrations in both 2020 and 2021. And this happened even with the COVID-19 shifts.
1990 jurisdictions have declared a climate emergency and came with a policy to ease the damage. They suggested a higher global price on carbon, an eventual ban of fossil fuels and climate reserves in order to protect and restore biodiversity.
Ever since the 1960s, we have been warned about climate change, and scientists have given us solutions since the 1980s. The greenhouse gas emissions are going up, and global warming is also not stopping. Do we really have more time here to continue living like this? We need to stop humans from exploiting the planet.
It is advisable to do fossil-fuel divestment and fossil-fuel subsidies. There are about 31 signs that the Earth is not doing well, starting with the changes in the ocean and the melting ice, but it’s not all bad. Solar and wind power has increased by 57% between 2018 and 2021. There still may be hope for us.
