According to a report recently published in the journal Nature, even if we are to put an immediate end to the construction of new power plants, factories, transportation, as well as all emissions of carbon dioxide, in respect of existing sources of emission will produce up to 66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), an increase of more than 1.5 degrees below the 5,800 metric tons of carbon dioxide.
If combined with the already planned new plant, and do not switch off the old power plants, the Earth’s average temperature will rise nearly twice as many.
The same group of scientists in 2010, made a report similar to the carbon dioxide emissions to calculate the average global temperature rise to 1.3 degrees, it is clear that in the past 10 years, humanity has not only failed to take adequate measures to effectively control the carbon emission, but also more to become worse.
If this is really the increase of 1.5 degrees, and 500 million square kilometers of the polar ice caps will melt and 70 percent of the corals will die, and 14% of the population will also be exposed to frequent heatwaves. It is also assumed that the atmospheric carbon dioxide level in the year 2050 to achieve balance in the past 30 years, the carbon dioxide rise stabilized, not only to begin to close the existing fossil fuel power generation equipment, the use of alternative emission-free manner, but also to the development of new tools, carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to recover.
It is not cheap, not to mention the majority of countries do not have the determination to alleviate economic development, for their share of responsibility for the planet. Recent climate more and more extreme is the fact (Look at last weekend’s European heatwave), the annual average temperature is also maintained a rising trend, from 1880 to the recorded information, over the past 10 years of global temperature of the top ten, eight, and more in the past five years are arranged in the top five. If we do not do something about it, and I don’t know 30 years later, the world will become like Oh…
