Scientists speak out, as climate change worsens

Scientists worldwide are concerned over the worsening climate change, as they believe that the globe will witness dramatic planetary conditions never witnessed before.

The bottom line is that the climate system is telling us an internally and physically consistent story," said Benjamin Santer, an atmospheric scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory who delivered the 2011 AGU Stephen Schneider Memorial lecture.
"While there will always be sizable scientific uncertainties, there can be no reasonable debate about whether the planet is warming,"

Furthermore James Hansen of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies explained, “We will get a very different climate with an increase of 2 degrees Celsius, and that’s what international organizations are setting as a goal. A 2 degrees Celsius increase
is actually a prescription for disaster.”

The global warming has affected almost every country over the past few years and things are getting worse by the day. There is a need to control this rapid change in the climate before it gets too late for everyone.

The United Nations (UN) has been worried on the rapid climatic changes in the past decade and wants the countries to respond to the situation before it gets too late.

Earlier, the World Bank’s envoy for climate change Andrew Steer also predicted that the changes in climate will bring more floods and disasters to the world. He stressed that steps should be taken to make this world a better place for everyone.

Floods have really caused a lot of damage to the world in the past few years. The concerning thing is that the intensity and frequency of such disasters is increasing day by day.

Last year, hundreds of people died in severe floods in Pakistan. The same happened this year in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

Apart from the deaths, millions of people were left homeless and had to struggle against hunger, poverty and disease.

If things continue like this, things will go out of control. It is high time for every country to react to this situation before it gets too late.
