Scientists warn of deteriorating Earth’s landmarks AlMomento.Net
A total of 14,000 scientists representing 1,990 jurisdictions in 34 countries have warned of worsening conditions on Earth, which, in their opinion, are “deteriorating alarmingly”.
“We have approached or already crossed key points related to important parts of the Earth’s system,” BioScience said in a statement released Monday.
According to scientists, these include glaciers from western Antarctica and Greenland, warm water coral reefs and the Amazon rainforest.
“In view of these catastrophic developments, we need short, frequent and easily accessible updates on climate emergencies,” they noted.
A similar warning was already issued in 2019, when 11,258 scientists released another report explaining to the world the severe climate emergency we face. Almost two years have passed, but things have not changed, on the contrary, they continue to deteriorate at an accelerated rate.
“Australian megaphires and climate-related disasters on the rise in 2019-20 and three major greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide) set record concentrations. 2021”. Said Thomas Newsome, an ecologist at the University of Sydney.
“This is despite the changes that occurred during the Govt-19 epidemics,” he stressed.
They demand G20 measures against climate change
The new report added the names of 2,800 scientists to the growing pool. They recommend a “three-dimensional short-term policy approach”: significantly higher global carbon prices, a global phase and ultimately ban on fossil fuels, and the development of climate reserves to protect and recover biodiversity and carbon sinks.
