Global Warming – GBRI
 

Under the 2015 Paris Agreement signed by almost 200 countries, the world pledged to limit the global temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius. However, a new report issued by Climate Action Tracker (CAT) has revealed that current climate policies adopted by governments are likely to push Earth towards 3.3 degrees Celsius of warming. The […]

A new study undertaken by the world’s leading climate scientists says that allowing global warming to exceed 1.5 degree Celsius would greatly impact our planet’s livability. What’s alarming is that this 1.5 degree Celsius temperature ‘guard rail’ could be exceeded in just 12 years, in 2030. The report warned that if global temperatures rose even […]

Rising sea levels, extreme weather conditions, severe floods and droughts, rapidly depleting glaciers – all these events taking place across the globe are inter-related, and all these interconnections are revealing changes that may not be obvious at first glance. A research published by a team of top scientists from China and Brazil astonishingly found that rising temperatures […]
