Why we’re closer to climate catastrophe than we thought

The report outlined the changes they believe need to be made for the temperature rise to be limited to 1.5ºC "The good news is that some of the kinds of actions that would be needed to limit global warming to1.5ºC are already underway around the world, but they would need to accelerate", said Valerie Masson-Delmotte, Co-Chair of Working Group I.

No new technologies are necessary to limit warming, according to the IPCC.

The report released this week was written by 91 co-authors from 40 countries, cited more than 6,000 references and incorporated 42,000 comments from governments and experts.

The Paris Agreement, from which the USA has effectively withdrawn under the Trump presidency, commits countries to "holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels".

The planet is even closer to catastrophe than scientists previously predicted, according to a new report from the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The report was commissioned by world leaders as a part of the 2015 Paris Agreement, a global pact to battle global warming.

Global Warming of 1.5°C will be a critical source of scientific data for the Katowice Climate Change Conference this coming December in Poland, three years after the historic 21 Conference of the Parties climate change summit held in Paris, France.

Scientists say that mere 0.5-degree difference would mean saving massive amounts of fresh water in the Mediterranean area, averting the most catastrophic droughts and deadly heat waves, and sparing at least some of the world's coral reefs.

At 1.5 degrees, the authors predict the Arctic Ocean will be free of sea ice once per century.

Selena Gomez Hospitalized For 'Emotional Breakdown'
The 26-year-old singer and actress is said to be seeking treatment after a rumored panic attack brought on by medical setbacks. She was released from the hospital after a few days, but had to be re-admitted after the symptoms persisted.

- If the pace of warming continues, the temperature would reach 1.5C around 2040.

The IPCC report said, "At +1.5 degrees Celsius, twice as many mega cities as present such as Lagos in Nigeria and Shanghai in China are likely to become heat stressed, potentially exposing more than 350 million more people to deadly heat stress by 2050".

There were also 133 contributing authors.

Allowing the global temperature to temporarily exceed or "overshoot" 1.5ºC would mean a greater reliance on techniques that remove Carbon dioxide from the air to return global temperature to below 1.5°C by 2100.

Labor frontbencher Penny Wong said climate wars inside the coalition government can not be allowed to hold Australia back any longer.

Greens climate spokesman Adam Bandt said the report showed it was "time to hit the climate emergency button", and neither major party was prepared to take the necessary steps.

This report shows the longer we leave it to act, the more hard, the more expensive and the more unsafe it will be.

The report fired up activists even as critics dismissed the deadline as another arbitrary "climate tipping point", as Climate Depot's Marc Morano put it.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Even if the World climate change has been played down by some world leaders like Donald Trump and others, the seeming consequences of the world climate change will wreak havoc on our world in the near futures.in different lands, there is occurrence of unprecedented Tsunami and earthquakes, The example of Indonesia strike by an natural disaster illustrates the consequences of the climate change in our world where the death toll is reported to reach 2000.
