The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has produced a comprehensive report on the course of global warming and how we can turn it to our advantage. According to the report, the Earth is this hot for the first time in 125,000 years, and glaciers are melting this fast for the first time in a long time. The report, which was released just before the climate summit, which will be attended by 195 governments, reveals how much we can reduce the harms of global warming if we act now.
At the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) According to one assessment, greenhouse gases are accelerating the Earth’s path towards ‘extreme’ climates in a way that cannot be ignored. The widespread use of fossil fuels, in particular, leads to the warming of the Earth with each passing year.
The lack of attention given to the climate crisis has caused the problem to grow. This is the reason for the increasing forest fires, drought and floods every year. Earth is this hot for the first time in 125,000 years and experts are constantly adding warnings to their warnings. Unfortunately, the biggest role in taking action falls on governments with the power to make big change. That’s why the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change continues its work.
The world is experiencing record changes
The need for fossil fuels, which we cannot prevent in modern society, has accelerated the warming of the world in two thousand years. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says the situation will only get worse as long as greenhouse gas emissions continue at the same rate, emphasizing that the future of the planet depends on the choices of today’s people.
The surface temperature of the Earth increased by 1.1 °C, according to measurements made between 1850 and 1900. Such an increase had not been seen since the Ice Age, according to calculations. The report issued by the IPCC also included the issue of how much the temperature increase could accelerate if greenhouse gas emissions continue at the same rate. According to the report If we continue like this, there will be an increase of 3 °C at the end of the 21st century. This number is the most consistent estimate by experts. All estimates are between 2.5-4 °C. In the report published in 2013, these estimates were between 1.5-4.5 °C.
The rapidly increasing temperature of the Earth has affected life on the planet in many different ways. Of course, the poles were also involved. The amount of glaciers that covered the seas in the last 10 years was less than it had been in millennia. The rate of decline of glaciers has increased as it has not been in 2,000 years. The temperature of the oceans It hasn’t increased this much in 11,000 years.
It is hoped that the report will guide the climate summit in which 195 countries will attend.

A report compiled by more than 200 scientists and approved by 195 governments in an online meeting last week aims to make calculations on climate change, mitigate it and create a lifestyle that is compatible with it. The report, which was issued 3 months before the climate summit to be held in Scotland, will guide this summit. Countries participating in the summit will make promises to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and we hope that they will keep their promises and carry out extensive studies.
Although this much warming of the planet is caused by human beings, it is quite natural that it warms up to a certain extent. Therefore, even if human-induced climate change is prevented, we will continue to see some warming-related effects. One of them is sea level. Even if the temperature increase is fixed at 1.5 °C, as set as the target on the panel, the warming will continue at a certain rate. Therefore, the glaciers will melt and sea level will rise by 3 meters over the next 2,000 years. Even if the increase is fixed at 2 °C, this measure will reach 6 meters. According to the report, the important thing is that the glaciers do not collapse rapidly and there are no sudden sea level rises.
