UN: Global temperature accelerating


A UN climate panel says the average temperature worldwide is likely to rise 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by as early as 2030.

On Monday, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, released a report on the impact of 1.5 degrees of global warming.

The report says human activities have pushed up the planet’s average temperature by about one degree since the pre-industrial era. It predicts that, at the current pace, the difference will widen to 1.5 degrees between 2030 and 2052.

The report says this is highly likely to result in more scorching days in many areas as well as heavier rain in some places.

The report says the risks of these events will rise further if the temperature difference grows to 2 degrees. To cap warming at 1.5 degrees, it stresses the need for cutting carbon dioxide emissions to “net zero” by around 2050 by using renewable energy as well as mechanisms for capturing the greenhouse gas.

IPCC Chair, Lee Hoe-sung, told reporters that society will be required to make unprecedented changes, but that containing the warming at 1.5 degrees is possible.
