United Nations Says We Only Have Till The Early 2030’s To Stop Hotcoldwetdry Doom

We had 12 years per the UN in 2018. But, then it was 18 months in July of 2019. And now

Earth is likely to cross a critical threshold for global warming within the next decade, and nations will need to make an immediate and drastic shift away from fossil fuels to prevent the planet from overheating dangerously beyond that level, according to a major new report released on Monday.

The report, by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a body of experts convened by the United Nations, offers the most comprehensive understanding to date of ways in which the planet is changing. It says that global average temperatures are estimated to rise 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) above preindustrial levels sometime around “the first half of the 2030s,” as humans continue to burn coal, oil and natural gas.

So, we went from 2030 to mid-2030s. When does it move to late 2030’s, then 2040s?

That number holds a special significance in global climate politics: Under the 2015 Paris climate agreement, virtually every nation agreed to “pursue efforts” to hold global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Beyond that point, scientists say, the impacts of catastrophic heat waves, flooding, drought, crop failures and species extinction become significantly harder for humanity to handle.

“Global climate politics”. Because this is not about science.

    “Earth is likely….”

    Likely is a qualifier which means they don’t know.
