The alarm bell rings! Former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon begged: Time is running out to save the earth!
If the mother earth we depended on for thousands of years is gone, where will we go?
When presiding over the release of the comprehensive report on climate change, former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon made an unprecedented high profile Warning: "The world is on the verge of a major disaster! The melting of the Antarctic ice sheet may cause sea levels to rise by 6 meters, flooding some coastal cities, including New York, Mumbai and Shanghai. The disaster may not happen in 100 years, or say It is likely to happen in 10 years. We don’t know, but once it happens, it may happen suddenly, almost after waking up, these cities are gone! Ban Ki-moon was at the Bali Climate Change Summit Begged: "Time is running out, I hope you make a wise decision. "
Do you think of the Hollywood blockbuster "The Day After Day"? This is not sensational by Ban Ki-moon. In fact, the comprehensive report uses a large amount of data analysis to point out: The global temperature may rise by 1.1 in this century.To 6.4 degrees Celsius, sea level rises by 18 to 59 cm; If the temperature rises more than 1.5 degrees Celsius, 20% to 30% of the world’s animal and plant species face extinction; if the temperature rises above 3.5 degrees Celsius, 40% to 70% of the Species will face extinction.
[The Arctic is also hot! Rarely high temperatures in the Arctic Circle] Recently, the temperature in the Arctic Circle in northern Sweden once reached 30°C. In northern Siberia, the temperature reached 32℃ at the beginning of this month. In the same period in previous years, the average temperature in this area was only 10°C. Monitoring data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center of the United States shows that the abnormally high temperature has further aggravated the melting of sea ice in the Arctic Circle this summer. Among them, the coasts of northern Europe and northwestern Russia have shown an unusually low sea ice situation. The reduction of sea ice will not only threaten the survival of polar bears and other creatures, but may also further aggravate the abnormal weather in the northern hemisphere.
Frequent occurrence of extreme abnormal weather, worsening environmental degradation, land degradation, reduced agricultural production, and increased ecological refugees. Global warming brought about by the greenhouse effect will trigger an unprecedented disaster on the earth, which is not alarmist!
△The habitat of polar bears is shrinking due to melting ice
A polar bear is resting on a piece of ice in the Arctic Ocean. With the continuous melting of Arctic ice and snow, the habitat of polar bears is shrinking year by year. Scientists predict that by 2050, the number of polar bears will decrease by 30%. Photo: David Cothran, National Geographic
Global warming is getting worse, the Arctic ice floes are melting, climate change has caused polar bears to starve to death, and the poor corpses are like "blankets." Scientists say that polar bears will become extinct within 100 years. If the earth continues to warm, we will lose these bears and the entire polar bear ecosystem. We must reduce our carbon emissions, eat the right food, fight climate change, and help them in the Arctic.
"If the climate warms, all mankind will suffer. Destroying nature is damaging the earth on which mankind himself depends, and if the temperature rises by two degrees Celsius, not only will the altitude be low The country will disappear; and 2, 30% of creatures will die. " "Humans should be vegetarian: US officials have calculated that if all humans are vegetarian, the amount of carbon dioxide released by the livestock industry will be eliminated, and even greater than the emissions of everyone who replaces large cars with small cars. , I have startedBe vegetarian".-Mike Nobel, descendant of Nobel Prize founder
The global warming situation is severe
The climate keeps warming and extreme weather is raging
The whole earth is scorching in heat waves
Global warming has caused a chain reaction of abnormal weather, and the hottest summer in 143 years has enveloped Japan. According to "United News", the capital Tokyo the first high temperature of 40 degrees in 100 years Last week, 65 people died of heatstroke in Japan, and 22,647 people sought medical treatment. Both the number of deaths and the number of medical treatments in a single week are the highest since the Japanese Fire Department recorded the number of deaths from heat stroke in July 2008; and since the beginning of this month, the heat wave Since the attack, 80 people have died in Japan and more than 35,000 have sought medical treatment.
In South Korea, the extremely hot high temperature has caused many deaths and someThe lowest daily temperature is now at a record high-in short, it is hot day and night. According to the British "Daily Mail" report, Many countries in the world are experiencing record-breaking high temperatures, and due to abnormal high pressure systems, high temperatures in some areas are expected to continue until the end of August.
Due to climate warming, Sweden has It hasn’t rained for a few months. Coupled with the high temperatures that lasted for several weeks, Sweden’s forests are turning into gunpowder kegs. As of last weekend, Sweden has had more than 50 forest fires, There are more than ten cases in the circle, and the forest fire has spread to all parts of the country for the first time in history.
Sweden is famous for its cold, snow and ice. Now it’s so hot that you can imagine the rest of the world. In most of the northern hemisphere, strong and persistent The heat wave has caused severe chaos and destruction.
The weather station in Ouarguera, Algeria, Africa recorded temperatures as high as 51.3 degrees Celsius.It broke through the highest temperature ever in Africa.
The European Space Agency recently announced satellite images. A farmland on the island of Zealand in Denmark was still green in July last year, and now it is "scorched" brown...
A village near Athens, Greece was also destroyed by wildfires, 74 people were killed and more than 100 injured; temperature in Quebec, Canada, exceeded 40 degrees Celsius on July 9 70 people died of complications caused by the heat. Montreal’s morgue was crowded with corpses that died from high temperatures. Many of the corpses had to be placed in other parts of the city. Coroner Jean Brochu said, This is the first time that the morgue in this city is so full of corpses.
[Warming Crisis! The water temperature of Lake Tahoe rises by 6 degrees in one year to a new high] A study recently found that the water temperature of Lake Tahoe hit a record high, attracting global attention Scientists concerned about the effects of warming are very concerned. UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center (UC Davis) Tahoe Environmental Research Center (Tahoe Environmental Research Center) released a research report on the 26th, they found Lake TahoeLake in July 2017 The water temperature rose to 68.4 degrees, 6 degrees higher than the previous year, the highest temperature on record. ——San Francisco Daily
Siberia, Russia, has discovered many extremely huge mysterious potholes in recent years.The four newly discovered are on the Yamal Peninsula. Some experts believe that the giant crater is formed by the melting of permafrost due to global warming, releasing flammable gas and exploding after the accumulation of gas. Experts urge a thorough investigation of the causes of potholes as soon as possible, so as not to cause greater disasters as global warming gets worse.
"2018 will be one of the hottest years on record, and temperatures in many countries have broken records , This is not surprising. At present, the heat waves and extreme high temperature events we are experiencing are consistent with the results of climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions. This is not the case. What will happen in the future is the scene that we are experiencing all the time."-Elena Monaenkova, Deputy Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization
According to the United Nations report, the livestock industry emits 14.5% of greenhouse gases, which is more than all the world’s transportation including airplanes, trains, cars, ships and trains combined It’s 1.5% more than that, which is the number one culprit for global warming. Because of the different production methods of food, the carbon emissions per kg of food are also different. Because cows, sheep and other ruminants are emitted by hiccups or farts Out ofMethane is a greenhouse gas 72 times stronger than carbon dioxide (calculated in 20 years). Therefore, animal husbandry is the biggest culprit of global warming.
The United Nations strongly appeals: GlobalSwitch to a vegan diet to save the planet! The United Nations Environment Programme and the European Commission jointly issued a report, confirming the two main factors causing environmental pressure: Petrochemical fuels and agriculture, especially animal breeding. This report calls for the world’s urgent need to change eating habits: In order to save the planet from hunger, lack of fuel for household heating, and the most serious impact of climate change, it is important to switch to a vegan diet globally.
Report It has been pointed out that 9 out of ten natural disasters are caused by climate disturbance. Global warming is the main cause of climate disturbances, causing climatic disasters such as heavy rains, blizzards, floods, hurricanes, droughts, extreme heat, extreme cold, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and submarine landslides.
If the earth’s age is 1 day, then humans have Only lived for 3 seconds, but weDo so many things that hurt the earth. We really don’t understand the earth and the animals that live with us...One of the most important things we need to do is to reduce carbon emissions from now on. This is also what we must do, because other effects of global warming will also affect humans and nature.
The British physicist Alan Carvert said in his article "The Fundamental Way to Solve the Kyoto Issue", Put forward that the fundamental way to solve global warming is to stop eating meat!
Nobel Peace Prize winner and Chairman of the United Nations Climate Change Research Group Li pointed out that not eating meat, riding a bicycle, and consuming less can help curb global warming. The global meat processing industry accounts for 18% of the total greenhouse gas emissions, even more than the transportation industry. For every additional vegetarian, the annual carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by about 1.5 tons!
James Hansen, an American meteorologist known as the "Father of Earth Warming Science" Zeng said: "From the perspective of personal lifestyle, the most effective way to reduce the ecological pressure on the planet and all species is to emphasize a more vegetarian diet.
"Reducing the consumption of beef and other meat products is for each of us Strong actions that can be done to prevent further deterioration of the environment and protect our natural resources. Our choices are very important.The healthiest choice everyone makes for themselves is also the healthiest choice made for this precious but wrecked earth. "—John Robbins, author of "The New American Cookbook" and chairman of the Save the Earth Foundation.
Vegetarian food is a very effective solution to curb global warming, and is also the fastest and simple way.
