Concordia University scientists have announced that efforts to limit global warming will not achieve the goal of preventing a 1.5 degree Celsius temperature rise by mid -century.
Science says that despite efforts to curb the development of global warming, by the middle of the twentieth century it will not be able to meet its goal of preventing global temperatures from rising by 1.5 degrees Celsius, higher than before industrial revolution.
The researchers reviewed scientific studies on the current state of the world’s climate. They also looked at trends leading to a dramatic increase in global temperatures and how researchers used their results to predict future climate changes. Finally, the researchers examined the extent to which various efforts around the world to reduce the emission of anthropogenic greenhouse gases are contributing to slowing global warming.
The likelihood of meeting the goal of limiting temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius has become almost zero, due to current conditions, the researchers said. Because that would require a 43 percent reduction in emissions by 2030, but is currently rising.
According to experts, the main reason for the failure of the plan to combat climate change is the lack of appropriate technology and political will to implement the decisions.
The researchers added that greenhouse gas emissions are currently causing a worldwide temperature rise of 1.25 degrees Celsius compared to before the industrial revolution.
According to climate models, future temperature increases will lead to an unexpected global climate behavior and a significant increase in anomalies.
195 countries reportedly signed the 2015 Paris Agreement, in which these countries and the European Union agreed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions over the next three decades to keep temperature rises below 1.5 degrees Celsius.
