Climate Change: The Planet Is Moving Towards a Point of No Return |  Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere broke new records

Along with the political agenda, an equally turbulent climate agenda has been established. Wednesday News: The concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, responsible for global warming, will hit a record high in 2022. As reported by the United Nations World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the planet exhibits an increasing trend in the presence of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. The information was shared a few days before the 28th Climate Summit, which begins in Dubai on November 30. Humanity, at a determined and dangerous pace, is approaching a point of no return.

“Despite warnings from the scientific community, we’re still going in the wrong direction,” he said. Peter Talas, Secretary General of WMO, an organization headed by Celeste Salo, the former director of the National Weather Service, through 2024. The official added: “There is no magic wand.” For the first time in history, Carbon dioxide concentrations exceeded 50 percent of pre-industrial levels, the oldest such scenario on record. A pattern similar to other greenhouse gases such as methane and nitrogen oxides continues to increase through 2023, according to the WMO. The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in 2022 is 417.9 parts per million (ppm), that is, 1,923 parts per billion (ppb) of methane and 335.8 ppb of nitrous oxide. What does this data indicate? 150, 264 and 124 per cent respectively compared to 1750.

“With 99 percent probability, According to different databases, this year will be the hottest on record” he points out Inez Camiloni, Konizet researcher and Argentine representative, precisely, presented a report at the meeting of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), conducted by the World Meteorological Organization. And he continues: “Emissions are increasing and there is no chance of them being reduced. All faiths are intertwined at the Climate Summit (COP)In the event that governments in Dubai accept commitments to comply with the Paris Agreement. “So far, although they have set targets for reducing emissions, what has been achieved has not been consistent with meeting the 1.5 degree target.”

Everyone subscribes, no one complies

Scientists from all over the planet who join the IPCC periodically disseminate their reports that consolidate information confirmed in thousands of academic articles in each case. Evidence of human influence in recurring extreme events (rainfall, drought, accelerated melting, shrinking glaciers, etc.) It’s huge.

Although he The Paris Agreement (signed by 195 countries in 2015) commits to limiting emissions and limiting temperature rise to 1.5 degrees compared to pre-industrial levels. According to the latest evidence collected, the increase is already expected to exceed 1.15 degrees. . Therefore, achieving this agreed goal in the coming decades seems almost impossible. After all, if we take into account the meager efforts made by the world’s most powerful countries to shift their energy matrix towards renewable sources.

“In view of the scientific evidence, the message is clear: Emissions must be reduced urgently and time to meet the proposed targets is running out faster and faster.” says Camilloni.

A rejection candidate

With the exception of Javier Millay, there are very few voices speaking out against scientific evidence globally. Although there are topics where controversy is accepted (and welcomed), The link between human activity and global warming is undeniable.

Asked by Miriam Bregman in a presidential debate ahead of the October general election, the Libertarian said: “I don’t deny climate change. What I am saying is that there has been a temperature cycle throughout Earth’s history. That is, there is a cyclical behavior and this is the fifth point of the cycle. The difference with the previous four is that before there was no man, now there is man. Therefore, all policies that blame humans for climate change are wrong. The only thing they seek is to raise funds to fund lazy socialists who write second-rate papers.

But debate is no exception. In an interview Tucker Carlson, a journalist from the Fox News Network further highlighted: “The world has had other high temperature peaks like the one we have now. It is a cyclical behavior regardless of human presence. In line with his ignorance, in 2021, he spoke to the youtuber Julian SerranoAnd he has already revealed: “Global warming is another lie of socialism. 10 or 15 years ago, it was discussed that the planet was going to freeze. They argue that it is getting hotter now“Those who know how these simulations are created will see that the functions are exaggerated in certain parameters with the intention of creating fear.”
