State of the Climate: NOT Good at All // Apr 2, 2019
Second of two videos. Every spring, for the past 25 years, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) releases their State of the Climate report. This years edition clearly shows how dire our climate situation is becoming.
Just when you think it can’t get worse, it does. In this, and the next few videos, I chat on highlights and key points that are in the report, which I highly recommend you read as well. Consequences to us and all other species on our planet are profound.
Ref: ‘Climate Change: Global Impacts ‘Accelerating’‘, 28 March 2019: ‘The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) says that the physical and financial impacts of global warming are accelerating. Record greenhouse gas levels are driving temperatures to “increasingly dangerous levels”, it says. Their report comes in the same week as the International Energy Agency (IEA) reported a surge in CO2 in 2018‘.
Ref: ‘Global Climate Indicators‘: ‘The Global Climate Indicators are a set of parameters that describe the changing climate without reducing climate change to only temperature.
They comprise key information for the most relevant domains of climate change: temperature and energy, atmospheric composition, ocean and water as well as the cryosphere.’
