The clear blue skies and sprinkles of pleasant weather some of us enjoy, may be the remnants of the losing balance of a collapsing world. The world as we know it, will not exist for long. We all are being constantly informed that our planet is being affected by carbon, and how global warning will lead to slow decay and change. Scientists giving us warning signs are but diluting the figures and the real danger at bay. The reality in 2050 is scarier than what we have been forewarned about says a new climate policy paper published by the Breakthrough National Centre for Climate Restoration in Melbourne, an independent think tank focused on climate policy.
Directly out of a post-apocalyptic movie, with people struggling for survival, fighting for scraps, the future picture painted in the report looks bleak. There is an existential threat to human civilization. We are not just dealing with melting ice tips and warmer climates; we may be erased completely in the coming years. The interwoven natural fabric directed by geological processes will be affected.
Climate models released by global governing and scientific bodies, give a more polite version of the impending doom. United Nations’ Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) used in 2018 predicted that the global temperature will increase by 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit (2 degrees Celsius), which will change the ecosystem drastically. According to this paper, there will be a 5.4 F (3 C) increase in the global temperature by the year 2050 resulting in absolute chaos. What will follow will be numerous species, including human going extinct. The drama that will unfold in the process will be akin to World War II.
The report advised mobilization and action in a decade. The coming years will be crucial in creating the ideas, machinery, innovation and awakening pertinent to mitigating the effects of climate change.
