The IPCC report on climate change is “code red” for humanity.

According to a significant UN scientific research, IPCC, human activity is affecting the climate in unprecedented and sometimes irreversible ways. The groundbreaking study warns of increasingly extreme heatwaves, droughts, and flooding, as well as the breaking of a key temperature limit in just over a decade.

The study is a “code red for humanity,” according to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

However, scientists believe that a global disaster can be prevented if the world acts quickly. Deep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions may be able to stabilize increasing temperatures.

UN Secretary General António Guterres echoed the experts’ findings, saying: “We can escape climate disaster if we come together now. However, as today’s news demonstrates, there is no time for delays or excuses. I am counting on all stakeholders, including government leaders, to make COP26 a success.”

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a body of experts whose findings are endorsed by the world’s governments, has provided a serious assessment of our planet’s future. Their study is the first significant assessment of climate change science since 2013. Its publication comes less than three months before the COP26 climate meeting in Glasgow.

“It is unequivocal that human impact has warmed the atmosphere, oceans, and land,” the IPCC paper states in strong, confident tones.

Prof Ed Hawkins, of the University of Reading in the United Kingdom, and one of the report’s authors, believes the scientists could not be clearer on this point.” We cannot be more clear; it is unequivocal and indisputable that humans are warming the world.”

Points to remember from the IPCC report.

  • The global surface temperature was 1.09 degrees Celsius higher between 2011 and 2020 than it was between 1850 and 1900.
  • Since 1850, the last five years have been the hottest on record.
  • In comparison to 1901-1971, the current pace of sea level rise has roughly tripled.
  • Since the 1990s, human activity has been “extremely likely” (90 percent ) the dominant cause of worldwide glacier retreat and Arctic sea-ice loss.
  • Since the 1950s, it is “almost certain” that hot extremes, such as heatwaves, have gotten more common and strong, whereas cold events have been less frequent and severe.
