According to the current latest plans to tackle climate change, it will not be easy for our planet at all. If we stick to it, the temperature of our planet could rise to 2.7 degrees Celsius by the end of this century, which is disastrous for a large number of ecosystems, reach the island.
Goals are not enough
How do Portal writes The Conversation, if humanity achieves all of its climate goals for 2030, which is highly unlikely in itself, the Earth will warm by as much as 2.7 degrees Celsius. However, this is far more than nature can bear, and this result poses serious problems for humanity as well.
The internationally agreed temperature is only 1.5°C, which means we will exceed it by more than 1°C. Countries are planning big emissions cuts, but a new study shows we need to produce another 28 million tons less CO2 per year than written in these plans, Reuters writes.
It is said that many goals are based on technologies that do not yet exist in the required numbers, or that we do not have them at all. Australia will have big problems because of this, but we won’t avoid them either.

Since pre-industrial times, the world’s temperature has risen by a total of 1.2 degrees Celsius. This change itself causes serious problems and changes everything. Climate change has caused extreme temperatures in eastern North America, but also a number of July floods in Europe. It seems that The greatest study in history was correct and people really should give up their comfort.
However, Australia is in a much worse situation, with its sweltering summers and devastating fires doing a lot of damage. If the planet warms by about 3°C by 2100, it could cause the complete loss of the Great Barrier Reef – in fact, most corals are unlikely to survive the 1.5°C warming.
Some parts of Sydney and Melbourne could experience temperatures of up to 50°C if such warming occurred, and in addition to exacerbating droughts, the region could also experience heavy and sudden rains, resulting in rapid and unexpected floods.
We may not have a solution
The United Nations Conference on Climate Change, also known as COP 26, which begins today in Glasgow, UK and runs until November 11, will address such issues and countries need to agree on realistic solutions.

Billionaires like Bill Gates or Elon Musk have their own solutions and seeking to mitigate the effects of the climate crisis, but this needs to be addressed at the global level. It is very important that countries finally agree, unite and coordinate their actions to reduce the impact on the global ecosystem – but this is still, but still, far from reality.
