Climate change causes issues that humanity cannot afford to neglect anymore. It’s about our home and what we’ll leave to our children and grandchildren. There’s no alternative available yet, such as moving our luggage to another planet, regardless of how much we would be willing to do it.
According to the BBC, UN researchers are preparing to publish a very detailed statement regarding the science of climate change. We can expect from the report compiled by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to offer details about changes to the planet’s ice caps, oceans, as well as lands for the coming decades.
It’s just the beginning…
Dr. Heleen de Coninck from Eindhoven University of Technology and who’s a coordinating lead author in charge of the IPCC Working Group III, declared as quoted by the BBC:
We’ve seen over a couple of months, and years actually, how climate change is unfolding; it’s really staring us in the face,
It’s really showing what the impacts will be, and this is just the start. So I think what this report will add is a big update of the state of the science, what temperature increase are we looking at – and what are the physical impacts of that?
Dr. Stephen Cornelius from WWF, and also an observer at IPCC meetings, explained how science has been through plenty of improvements in recent years. He said that there’s a better understanding of chemistry, biology, and physics. Therefore, simulating and projecting temperature and precipitation changes from the future can be done much better than before.
Climate change has plenty of negative impacts on our planet. According to EarthDay, over one million species are at risk of extinction because of climate change.
