Published on: October 30, 2021

The world has surpassed the critical threshold of 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels for a full year, according to a report released by the United Nations. This milestone is a stark reminder of the urgent need for global action to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The impacts of this level of warming are already being felt around the world, with more frequent and severe heatwaves, hurricanes, droughts, and wildfires. Rising sea levels are threatening coastal communities, and biodiversity loss is accelerating at an alarming rate.

The report highlights the importance of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius to avoid the most catastrophic impacts of climate change. This will require rapid and ambitious cuts to greenhouse gas emissions, as well as investments in renewable energy and sustainable practices.

Only by working together on a global scale can we hope to mitigate the worst effects of climate change and build a more sustainable future for all. The time for action is now.
