The last few years have seen numerous calls to save the world from the adverse effects of global warming. However, many people do not understand what the IPCC calls the warming of above 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels.
The “warming of above 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels” statement has been thrown around for a number of years with no significant explanation of what it means for global warming.
According to various internationally recognized organisations and NASA,
The Earth’s climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.
Through this, we can see that there has been significant changes in the environment. Some places are already experiencing significant changes in their weather patterns and environment.
The most notable change is the melting of the polar ice caps. Due to this , we can attribute that global warming is a reality that should be kept in check in the coming years for humanity to survive.
