1 billion climate refugees by 2050, according to the UN

A recent report prepared by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns that if global warming does not stop increasing, by 2050 there will be 1 billion climate refugees.

Global warming is causing devastating effects at the environmental level and many of its effects are already irreparable. One of the major problems today is the rise in sea level and the warming of the oceans that has led to the loss of much of marine biodiversity.

On the other hand there is an exaggerated increase in the melting of glaciers. In Blogthinkbig.com we have already talked about this consequence. The glaciers in the Alps have already lost a length of two meters and Greenland is melting four times faster than in 2003. What will be the consequences for the population?

Alert to the increase in climate refugees

A recent report prepared by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of the United Nations Organization (UN) warns that if we continue to emit harmful gases that increase the warming of the Earth as until now, to In 2050 there will be a total of 1 billion people affected by the warming of the seas and the thaw.

This study, developed by more than 100 scientists from 80 different countries, warns that if we continue with this environmental massacre and no international commitments are made by the governments involved, the number of climate refugees will rise exponentially since the level of Sea will rise about a meter.

Why do we no longer act in the face of the loss of animals, plants and human lives that climate change is causing? “Leaders must act now to guarantee a future for the planet. It is necessary to invest in drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions and significantly increasing funds for resilience and adaptation, ”said WWF Chief Climate Change Advisor Stephen Cornelius.

This document has been published after the famous Climate Action Summit held in New York and is a complete investigation that insists that there are effects that are irreparable even if we managed to reverse global warming. The most affected will undoubtedly be the most impoverished countries in the Global South, generating ‘climate apartheid’.
