UN Scientist Warns Of Global Warming Risk to Humans

By Fredrica Syren:

Global warming is real, is putting humans at risk and it’s only just the beginning, United Nation scientists reported. According to them, everyone on this planet will be effected by global warming and the time to take action is now, before it’s too late. Global warming is causing extreme changes to the weather world wide, like killer heat waves in Europe, wildfires in the United States, droughts in Australia and deadly flooding in Mozambique,

Thailand and Pakistan. Global warming affects not only the weather but also has an enormous socio-economical impact, and points out just how vulnerable humans really are. Most of the hottest years on record have occurred during the past two decades.  In Europe, the heat wave in the summer of 2003 resulted in over 30,000 deaths.  In India, temperatures reached 48.1 degrees Centigrade — nearly 119 degrees. We’re going to see more and worse extreme weather and more people, animals and plants will be at risk as it continues.

The UN says that cumulated carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere could create a “greenhouse effect” and increase the temperature of the planet.  A perceptible process in that direction had already begun — a side effect of the industrial age and its production of carbon dioxide and other such “greenhouse gases.”

To combat global warming we need to shift the world’s reliance on fossil fuels to renewable energy sources, but one of the best chances to slow down global warming is reduce the amount of meat and dairy we eat. It is estimated that 51 % of the worldwide greenhouse gas emissions is causes by the meat and dairy industry.

Fighting global warming is also in our best financial interest because according to UN Climate Change panel’s latest report, a warmer world means that food prices will be higher, and trigger hotspots of hunger among the world’s poorest people.  Less food can be grown in a warmer world with extreme and unpredictable weather than in a world with a stable climate.

So ladies and gentlemen, there we have it; a report made by the world’s scientists telling us that global warming is here, created by us, and that we need to take action TODAY or we’re at serious risk.
