"Failure to act on climate is a 'collective suicide pact', UN chief tells world leaders" 8th November 2022


List of countries by carbon dioxide emissions: Top 3 Countries
Country      % of world population  % of World CO2 emission
1 China___________19%_________________28% CO2
2 USA___________4.4%________________15.6% CO2
3 India__________18.2%________________6.56% CO2

UPDATE: Vietnam is losing rice fields to sea at an alarming rate and it is feared that there will be not enough rice fields left to produce their main export commodity - Rice.
2 degrees C is considered too high and demand is growing to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees C. This might save some land getting lost to sea because of rising sea level due to Global Warming.
9th October 2018.

The world has warmed more than one degree Celsius since the Industrial Revolution.
The Paris climate agreement 2016, agreed to restrict Global warming to 2 degrees Celsius.
The odds of succeeding are one in 20 but 2 degrees means the extinction of the world's tropical reefs,
the sea-level rise of several meters and the abandonment of the Persian Gulf- a long-term disaster.

Failing that, 3-degree warming means the loss of forests in the Arctic and the loss of most coastal cities.

Four degrees: Europe in permanent drought; vast areas of China, India, and Bangladesh claimed by desert; Polynesia swallowed by the sea; the Colorado River thinned to a trickle; the American Southwest largely uninhabitable.

The prospect of a five-degree warming has prompted some of the world's leading climate scientists to warn of the end of human civilization.

Do we need to worry? Not if you are in the USA because President Trump has pulled out from
The Paris climate agreement so he thinks that Global warming will go away if you ignore it.

I am an Engineer and a Scientist and I have seen the effect of Global warming and Global disasters.
I am worried and you should worry too even if you are in the USA. Fires all over should warn you.

This was written in 2018. Today in 2022, at the COP27 Climate Summit world leaders will try to save the world from annihilation of our world due to climate change. A lot of pledges were made by these world leaders but not much has been done. I think they will do the same thing this time and not much will be done. Someone said that pandemics, inflation and even war will eventually end but climate change will not go away and will be here and will destroy us in the end.
