Humankind has held itself accountable for the cause of climate change

By the end of the century, the Earth’s temperature will have risen by 2.4 ° C, according to the latest estimates, if all planned climate protection measures are taken. This is a much higher value than the 1.5 ° C target.

The new forecasts were prepared as part of the Climate Action Tracking Analysis (CAT) project, whose findings were presented by climate researcher Niklas Hohn on Tuesday with German Environment Minister Svenia Schultz on the occasion of the 12th Petersberg Climate Conference.

Although they were working on an optimistic scenario, the researchers say that if more action is not planned to mitigate climate change,

By 2100, temperatures could rise by as much as 2.9 ° C.

If more measures were taken to reduce emissions, the rate of warming could remain 2 ° C.

Currently, 131 countries have set a goal of becoming climate neutral. This represents a “clearly critical mass”, covering 73 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.

However, to achieve the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement, temperature rises must be mitigated by 1.5 ° C by the end of the century. To this end, based on knowledge of the Convention against Torture, global emissions must be cut in half by 2030.

But for now, we’re not moving in that direction, according to Honey. The researcher said, “There is a big gap between needs and reality.”

Some countries, such as the United States, Britain, or Argentina, have set ambitious climate targets. On the other hand, other countries such as Australia and Brazil did not live up to expectations.
