The end of the world is near!
A climate catastrophe is upon us
LIFESTYLE Global warming
As per a new UN climate report, greenhouse emissions are affecting our planet a lot faster than we realize. Scientists have stated that if we don't scale back emissions, ideally by 45% by 2030, it will result in devastating and irreversible consequences for the Earth.
At the current rate the planet's population is pumping out greenhouse emissions, the world is well on its way to reaching a temperature of 1.5ºC (2.7º F) anytime between 2030 and 2052. Researchers say that if this occurs, major coastal cities like New York, Mumbai, and Jakarta would be at a high risk of flooding. The Earth would also be vulnerable to extremely hazardous weather such as hurricanes, fires, droughts, destroyed marine ecosystems, and even more endangered and extinct animal species. Since 1960, worldwide fuel emissions have quadrupled, and the last four years alone have been the hottest the globe has ever been.
This is absolutely the last chance we have to save the planet, as scientists strongly believe we are running out of time.
The Guardian maintains that the one thing we can do as individuals to help make a difference it to give up meat and dairy produce. Are you ready to go vegan to save the world?
