Climate change: the period of four years from 2015 to 2018 was the hottest for the last two hundred years. It is reported by CNN.
2018 broke all records and became the hottest, it is reported by the world meteorological organization (WMO).
Warming continues, sea levels are rising, glaciers are melting, and these events once again prove climate change. “Concentrations of greenhouse gases are again at a record level, and if the current situation does not change, the temperature will rise by 3-5 degrees by the end of the century,” said WMO Secretary-General petteri Taalas.
“I repeat that we are the first generation that is fully aware of climate change and the last generation that has the ability to change something,” said Taalas.
The world meteorological organization reports that in the last decade, the average increase in temperature was 0.93 degrees wysheid than in the period 1850-1900 years. “It’s more than just a performance,” — said the Deputy Secretary-General of WMO, Elena Manaenkova.
Do not forget that warming affects human health, access to food and fresh water, to the extinction of animals and plants, to survival of coral reefs and marine life.
WMO noted the tragic events of 2018, which were the result of warming. In the Indian state of Kerala more than 5 million people were affected by floods. Similarly, in Japan hundreds of people died in the floods.
