In a virtual conference, nearly 200 nations to discuss the science behind growing climate consequences, emphasizing the urgent need to reduce emissions and prepare for the challenges ahead.
The next Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) update will examine the implications of changes in climate in the previous and present, as well as the coming years.
Devastating impacts of changes in climate
IPCC shows Agence France-Presse (AFP) an early draft in which it is clear that destructive climate impacts are a real and present threat. According to Daily Sabah, Some of these situations have resulted in the necessity of adapting to unbearable heat, flash flooding, and storm surges becoming a matter of life and death.
Alexandre Magnan, a researcher at the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations in Paris, said that although they may find solutions to reducing carbon emissions, they will still require solutions to adapt to the changing climate.
The report also stated that it is expected that the research will reveal that species extinction, ecological collapse, devastating health effects from disease and heat, and water shortages will all worsen in the coming decades, even if carbon emissions that cause global warming are reduced.
Climate Change affects animals
Extreme changes in climate and weather patterns, as well as rising temperatures, are putting the world’s biodiversity in perpetual danger of extinction. ABC News reported that the usual narrative about climate change and biodiversity is full of negativity. However, experts say that one interesting aspect of the warming temperatures is how various species have been adapting.
Wildlife extinction is a complicated issue, and scientists agree that habitat loss, rather than warming climate, is the most direct human contribution to the extinction of biodiversity. Climate change is also being recognized as a factor.
“Climate change is like this global killer. In effect, it often makes all the other risks that animals face much worse,” said Maria Paniw, an ecologist at the Doñana Biological Station, as quoted in the report.
