Posted January 22, 2019 07:21:58 By Anna NairnThe snow of global warming may be melting, but it is not the only threat to the survival of the planet.
According to new research, the global population is about 2.8 billion people, and that number is growing.
In an article published in the journal Nature, scientists reported that humans are responsible for around a third of all the carbon dioxide we emit.
“We’re basically causing the Earth to warm, and we’re contributing to the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide,” said lead author Anna Nairan of the Bristol Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI).
“The problem is that this rise is mostly caused by the human-driven greenhouse effect, and if we’re not careful, we’ll start to exacerbate the problem.”
Scientists say we are responsible for a third of the global warming the world has experienced.
The article reveals that the warming caused by humans has increased by almost one degree Celsius since 1900, with an increase of 3.4 degrees over the last century.
And this is not just the melting of glaciers and permafrost; it is also the burning of fossil fuels, methane emissions, and acid rain.
According the report, global warming is now the greatest threat to human existence on the planet, and it has the potential to cause catastrophic consequences in many different areas.
“The rise in global CO2 emissions has already had an impact on the world’s weather, water resources, crop yields, soil carbon and biodiversity, water and air quality, food security, and ecosystem services,” Nairann said.
“If this trend continues, the world could be facing a food crisis and an ice age by 2060.”
The report suggests that it may be possible to reduce our carbon footprint to within a third, but that the solution will be a “slow-down”.
The world is in a dire position if we do not take urgent action.
“As CO2 levels continue to increase, the probability of extreme weather events increases and people will become increasingly vulnerable to these impacts,” said the study.
“This could result in extreme weather and/or climate-related disasters, such as the drought in the Middle East, a pandemic in India and Pakistan, and widespread wildfires in the Americas.”
“It is important to note that climate change is not a simple thing.
It is not natural or caused by human activity.
It has the ability to change the planet in ways we cannot control.”
There is an urgent need for rapid and effective action.
“According to WHOI, there is currently an urgent lack of data to help us understand the effects of climate change.”
In order to understand the impact of climate on humans, we need to be able to measure the long-term and short-term impacts of climate, as well as understand the underlying mechanisms of change,” the report states.”
Without this information, it is impossible to predict what might happen in the future and how to prevent them.””
The rapid growth of the global economy is responsible for the rapid growth in emissions, but there is a lack of reliable information about how much CO2 is being emitted and how this will affect people’s lives and the planet,” the study concludes.
The paper also points out that there are a number of ways we can reduce our greenhouse gas footprint and that this is especially important for our young children.”
One of the most important things we can do is to start reducing the number of hours we work each day.
This will reduce the amount of CO2 we are adding to the atmosphere, and in turn reduce our impact on climate,” Narrowley said.
While a quick solution to the problem may not be on the cards, it could help us save the planet from the worst impacts of global climate change in the coming years.”

We can reduce emissions by eating less of it, but we need people to be aware of how much it’s actually costing.”
