"E-ART-H'S(Ear-th's)" Global Warming: "...
Earth’s warming is closing in on a crucial limit, U.N. report says..!"
The warming world is getting closer to passing a temperature limit set by global leaders five years ago and may exceed it in the next decade or so, according to a new United Nations report.
In the next five years, the planet has nearly a 1-in-4 chance of experiencing a year that’s hot enough to put the global temperature at 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit, or 1.5 degrees Celsius, above pre-industrial times, according to a new science update released Wednesday by the U.N., the World Meteorological Organization and other global science groups.
That 1.5 degrees Celsius is the more stringent of two limits set in 2015 by world leaders in the Paris climate change agreement. A 2018 U.N. science report said a world hotter than that would still survive, but the chances of dangerous problems increase tremendously.
