At present, the average temperature of our planet is 1.5 degrees Celsius higher than it was during the Industrial Revolution. The Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change has just published its latest research report in the Lancet Planetary Health Journal. This report explains the health benefits of accepting the Paris Weather Agreement. The Paris Climate Agreement emphasizes limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius. The study research was conducted in China, Germany, Brazil, India, Indonesia, South Africa, Nigeria, England and America.
Is the Indian Ocean warming faster than other oceans in the world due to the increase in average global temperature?
The IPCC, a panel of international scientists on climate change, has released its sixth report so far on ‘Climate’. The Indian Ocean is warming faster than any other ocean. According to the authors of this research, this kind of warming of the Indian Ocean may increase the incidence of sea level rise. As a result low lying areas suffer from rail crisis. The report further states that if the average global temperature were 1.5 degrees Celsius higher than the temperature at the time of the Industrial Revolution. Extreme weather events will be observed even if success is achieved in keeping the extra limits. Heat waves, torrential rain conditions and melting of ice cubes will occur, which could affect India as well!
G-7 Group of 7 industrialized countries decided not to support coal based power plants?
The environment ministers of the 7 G-7 group of industrialized nations held a two-day virtual meeting on controlling rising global temperatures. The meeting was hosted by England. England currently holds the G-7 presidency of the Group of Seven. These countries decided not to support coal-fired power plants after the end of 2021.
A 10-year weather update has been released by the ‘Met Office’ of England under the leadership of the World Meteorological Organization starting from the global annual?
The UK Met Office in the UK, under the auspices of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), released its annual 10-year weather update for England. According to the report, in the period 2021 – 2025, the average global temperature may temporarily exceed 1.5 degrees. The average global temperature of the atmosphere during this period is 0.4 (40%) more likely to exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius than before the Industrial Revolution.
- What is the phenomenon of ‘global warming’?
‘Global warming’ is a phenomenon caused by the accumulation of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide etc. in the lower atmosphere of the earth.
- Greenhouse gases that accumulate in the lower atmosphere absorb the sun’s heat and keep it in contact with the earth, which is essential for human and animal life. Arises.
- Is. With the beginning of the Industrial Revolution of 1700, humans began using fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas in vehicles such as cars, trucks and in factories. So the combustion of fossil fuels caused more greenhouse gases to accumulate in the earth’s lower atmosphere.
- As a result, more carbon dioxide is currently deposited in the Earth’s lower atmosphere than in the Earth’s lower atmosphere in the last 8 million years.
- The sea level has risen by 8 inches since 1870.
- This global warming (phenomenon of average temperature rise) has had an apparent impact on the environment. Snow-capped peaks in the Himalayan mountains have begun to shrink. The ice in rivers and lakes is melting.
- Premature flowering is seen on trees and shrubs.
