Climate change rapid, intensifying
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
via Agri-View (NE) – Sep 5, 2021
Scientists are observing changes in the Earth’s climate in every region and across the entire climate system, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Report – “Climate Change 2021: the Physical Science Basis.” The report was released in early August. Many of the changes observed in the climate are unprecedented in thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of years. Some of the changes already set in motion – such as an increase in sea level – are irreversible.
Strong and sustained reductions in emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases would limit climate change. While benefits for air quality would come quickly, it could take 20 years to 30 years to see global temperatures stabilize, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Working Group I.
