Breakthrough Independent Australian Analytical Group – National Center for Climate Restoration, which has been working on global climate change since 2014 and includes prominent scientists, politicians and public figures, published a frightening report, which refers to the immediate prospects of mankind for the next 30 years. According to the authors of the report, we, as a civilization, are on the verge of self-destruction, the point of no return for which is the year 2050. The organization calls the only way to avoid such a terrible prospect for the future of all mankind the general mobilization to combat climate change on the planet.
is it so bad?
The key author of the report was the former Australian Minister of Defense, retired Admiral Chris Barry, who is an active conservationist. According to him, by the middle of this century, climate change may have “extremely serious security implications” that are not only very likely but difficult to predict, since humanity has not experienced anything like it in scale over the past thousand years. According to the assessment, the continuation of the existing global warming trends will cause the average temperature to rise by 3 degrees Celsius, after which the changes will become irreversible. This will accelerate the breakdown of key ecosystems, “including coral reef systems, the Amazon rainforest, and the Arctic,” the report says. Results will be devastating. More than a billion people will be forced to relocate from unfavorable living conditions, and two billion people on the planet will face a shortage of water. Agriculture in the still fruitful subtropical regions will become impossible, and the volume of food supplies throughout the world will be seriously reduced throughout the world.
What will global warming lead to?
According to the authors of the report, the point of no return is almost passed and today we are rapidly moving towards the destruction of the normal biosphere, and with it the states and the usual order of international relations.
“Even if the global temperature rises by 2 degrees Celsius, there may be a need to resettle more than a billion people, and under less favorable scenarios, the extent of the damage is beyond our prediction capabilities. Perhaps we will speak about the complete end of civilization, ”the report says.
How to deal with global warming?
The only way to weaken the catastrophe can be the global mobilization of the efforts of the entire world community aimed at combating global warming. The authors cite as an analogy what happened during the Second World War. Only in this case is it about fighting against the increase in greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere of the planet and the restoration of the Earth’s climate. Previously, scientists from the University of Cambridge have proposed radical ways to combat global warming.
