Global dependence on fossil fuels continues to heat the planet. This growth has not been observed since the last ice age, about 125 thousand years ago.
The widespread use of fossil fuels has resulted in surface temperatures rising 1.1 ° C from the average from 1850 to 1900. No such increase has been seen since the last ice age 125,000 years ago, according to a new IPCC report published in the journal Nature.
The warming of the planet also leads to a rise in the level of the World Ocean and global climatic cataclysms. It is noted that such natural phenomena will occur more and more often against the background of global warming.
Experts point out that even if governments aggressively cut greenhouse gas emissions, a global rise in temperatures above the 1.5 ° C threshold in the coming years will not be avoided.
