The Organization of the United Nations remembers it, “there is to flatten the curve of climate change” and ensure that in the next five years will be a new temperature record global average. Even though the world has been paralyzed, the climate change does not stop.
The report on the State of the Climate of the european agency Copernicus, confirms the warming trend of the Old Continent.
Although it is still difficult for the agency to establish a direct relationship between global warming and extreme weather events.
The environmental activist Greta Thunberg has warned about the effects.
“The climate crisis also affects us. It also counts as an immediate threat. Even if it is not as immediate as the coronavirus, we will undoubtedly affect us and especially to other people in other parts of the world, something that is already happening now”.
This same study warns that continues the global trend to rising emissions of greenhouse gases. Despite efforts to stop it.
Even so, the coronavirus has eclipsed this day, as explained by the UN secretary-general, António Guterres.
“On this International Day of Mother Earth, all eyes are on the pandemic, the greatest challenge that has faced the world since the Second World War. We must act decisively to protect our planet from both the coronavirus as the threat of climate change. The current crisis is a wake-up call unprecedented. We need to convert the recovery into an opportunity to make things right in the future.”
From the UN remind us that although the pandemic has resulted in a temporary reduction of the emissions of gases of greenhouse effect, not a substitute for a plan of action on climate.
According to the document published by the agency, Copernicus, Europe is warming at a rate higher than the global average.
2019 was the warmest since records began in Europe. In fact, 11 of the 12 warmest years on record have taken place in the last two decades.
