Global Warming: We're on the Path to Double the 1.5°C/2.7°F Limit

Global Warming: We're on the Path to Double the 1.5°C/2.7°F Limit

  • The planet has already warmed by 1.2 degrees Celsius, and if emissions are not reduced, it is likely to exceed the 1.5°C limit within the next two decades.
  • This could lead to more frequent and severe heatwaves, droughts, and natural disasters.

The "Doomsday Glacier" is More Vulnerable Than Previously Thought

  • The Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica, ominously nicknamed the "doomsday glacier," is melting rapidly in unexpected ways.
  • Satellite data shows the glacier's ice shelf, which previously acted as a protective barrier, is now receding at an alarming rate, exposing more ice to the warming ocean and accelerating the melting process.
  • The melting of Thwaites Glacier alone could raise global sea levels by up to 2 feet (0.6 meters), threatening coastal communities around the world.

Irreversible Damage

Irreversible Damage

  • The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns that without immediate and deep emissions reductions, the world's climate goals will soon slip out of reach.
  • The window of time to prevent the worst impacts of climate change is closing quickly, and reducing emissions by 45% by 2030 is crucial to limiting global warming to 1.5°C.

Once the tipping point is touched, Earth's temperature will rise by 2 degrees Celsius, starting a series of dangerous global disasters.
