UN Warns of Climate Change: “Humanity Is on Thin Ice”

United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres sent a video message to the meeting of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in Geneva.

Noting that the IPCC Report reveals that human activity over the last 2 centuries is responsible for global warming, Guterres stated that the temperature increase in the last half-century has reached the highest level in 2 thousand years.

Guterres said, “The climate is a ticking time bomb. The report released today shows how to defuse it. It is a survival map for humanity.

Stating that it is possible to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius, but that a big step must be taken for this, Guterres noted that the report is a call for all countries and sectors to act quickly.

Humanity is on thin ice – and that ice is melting fast” Guterres said.

UN Secretary-General Guterres said he presented an “Acceleration Agenda” plan to achieve the goals under the Climate Solidarity Pact, which calls for developed country leaders to commit to reducing carbon emissions to net zero by 2040 and developing countries to 2050.

We need action on climate at full speed. We don’t have a minute to lose” he warned.

IPCC Report

The 6th Assessment of the Synthesis Report prepared by IPCC scientists was approved after about a week of work.

While scientists voluntarily contribute to the IPCC, which has 195 member countries, the final assessment report was written by 93 scientists.

While the report focuses on the losses and damages caused by the climate crisis and the risks that these damages will increase, it points out that the necessary steps to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5 degrees must be taken rapidly, especially by 2030.

According to the report, the global temperature increase has reached 1.1 degrees Celsius compared to the 1850-1900 level due to various reasons, especially the use of fossil fuels for more than a century.

While the average temperature increase in land areas was 1.59 degrees, it was calculated as 0.88 degrees in the oceans.

Earth’s temperature has risen faster since 1970 than any other 50-year period in the last 2 millennia.
