Independent Australian think tankBreakthrough - National Center for Climate Restoration, dealing with the problems of global climate change since 2014 and including major scientists, politicians and public figures, has published a frightening report, which talks about the near future of humanity for the next 30 years. According to the authors of the report, we, as a civilization, are on the verge of self-destruction, the point of no return for which is the year 2050. The organization calls the only way to avoid such a terrible prospect for the future of all mankind the general mobilization to combat climate change on the planet.
is it so bad?
The key author of the report was the former minister.Australian Defense, retired admiral Chris Barry, who is an active conservationist. According to him, by the middle of this century, climate change may have “extremely serious security implications” that are not only very likely, but difficult to predict, since humanity has not experienced anything like it in scale over the past thousand years.
According to the assessment, the continuation of the existing trendsglobal warming will cause the average temperature to rise by 3 degrees Celsius, after which the changes will become irreversible. This will accelerate the breakdown of key ecosystems, "including coral reef systems, the Amazon rainforest and the Arctic," the report says.
Results will be devastating. More than a billion people will be forced to relocate from unfavorable living conditions, and two billion people on the planet will face a shortage of water. Agriculture in the still fruitful subtropical regions will become impossible, and the volume of food supplies throughout the world will be seriously reduced throughout the world.
What will global warming lead to?
According to the authors of the report, the point of no returnpractically passed and today we are rapidly moving towards the destruction of the normal biosphere, and with it the states and the usual order of international relations.
"Even with the global temperature rising by 2degrees Celsius may need to relocate more than a billion people, and in less favorable scenarios, the extent of the damage is beyond our prediction capabilities. Perhaps we will speak about the complete end of civilization, ”the report says.
How to deal with global warming?
The only way to weaken the catastrophe canbecome a global mobilization of the entire global community, aimed at combating global warming. The authors cite as an analogy what happened during the Second World War. Only in this case is it about fighting against the increase in greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere of the planet and the restoration of the Earth’s climate.
Previously, scientists from the University of Cambridge have proposed radical ways to combat global warming.
