Earth Might Become Unlivable By 2100
A new study has revealed that global warming is increasing at an alarming rate which might result into intense droughts. If not much was done to minimize the rapid increase in global warning, the earth might become unlivable by 2050 or 2100.
“The global warming that was previously predicted to occur within 2,000 years, is now predicted to occur within the lifetimes of some people who are alive even today,” wrote Dahr Jamail at Opednews.com.
In the last decade, because of global warming, the Greenland ice discharge has increased 632% and the snow cover in Northern hemisphere has already decreased by more than 50% since 1962.
Statistics show that the three most important global warming gases - Carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide since 1750 have increased to levels higher than they have been in 800,000 years.
Further worse, a new report by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that combined works of 2,000 scientists from 154 countries has also confirmed and strengthened the previous predictions. The report pointed that even 100 percent emissions reductions will no longer keep our climate from changing dangerously.
“A large fraction of anthropogenic climate change resulting from CO2 emissions is irreversible on a multi-century to millennial time scale, except in the case of a large net removal of CO2 from the atmosphere over a sustained period,” read the report.
But the good news is that the solution lies within our gasp. “The economic evaluations of the solutions to climate change show that 1 percent of global gross domestic product ($540 billion in 2012) is what we need to spend to control climate pollution every year - using existing technologies, techniques and policy,” reported Truth Out.
