A UN-appointed panel of experts flagged a concern that the earth is witnessing a severe climate change and that the Earth is getting so hot that temperatures in about a decade will probably blow past the most ambitious threshold set in the Paris accord. That increases the risk of extreme weather and long-term climate-related disasters.
The Paris agreement called for limiting temperature increases to well below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) and ideally to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) over pre-industrial levels.
The climate change is happening due to greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel burning and deforestation which is choking the planet and putting billions of people at immediate risk.
The impacts of the climate crisis, from extreme heat to wildfires to intense rainfall and flooding, will only continue to intensify unless some action is initiated. What the world requires now is real action. And for ensuring that all major economies have to commit to aggressive climate action during this critical decade.
Experts have suggested that the world must urgently wind down fossil fuel supply in an orderly and transparent way and halt high-risk high-cost oil and gas exploration now.
The report is yet more unimpeachable proof that climate change is happening now, and that global warming is already one of the most harmful drivers of worsening hunger and starvation, migration, poverty and inequality all over the world.
The climate emergency is intensifying each day, and unless some serious action plan is not put in place the future will of course be very troublesome. The climate crisis has already been showing us some stark realities and those vary from extreme weather conditions to increased natural disasters.
The matters are getting even worse with developing and the under developed world yet to understand the gravity of the situation and they seem to be ever busy with over exploration and use of fossil fuel and other natural resources.
Though some extremities have been witnessed over the past several decades but as of now the realization to conserve the environment has not dawned on the leadership as well as the people.
Besides, the will to tackle the rising threat of climate crisis has not been witnessing a good number of takers in most of the countries which means that a lot needs to be done to make the people and the leaders understand the seriousness of the situation.
And till then the world will have to live with an increased threat and a possible disaster.
