Climate emergency

In a paper that was published in the journal BioScience, around 11,258 signatories out of which 69 are from India declared Global Climate Emergency. They presented climate change trends and methods to mitigate the threat. The report was titled “World Scientists.”

Key Points:

  • It is based on a scientific analysis of more than 40 years of publicly available data. It illustrates several key climate change indicators since the scientists from 50 nations met at the First World Climate Conference in Geneva in 1979.
  • The scientists presented a list of measures called “Vital Signs” that better represent climate change. It includes measures of human activities that can change climates like air travel, meat production and fertility rate. These activities have been termed as backward steps that are worsening climate change further. In 20 years, the world fertility rate has reduced greatly claims the report. 
  • They presented 14 measures of impacts of climate change like the number of extreme weather events, ocean acidity, ocean heat content, etc.
  • Massive energy efficiency and conservation practices to cut out “Neither use nor dig out fossils under the earth.”
  • The following are the six key objectives of the report 

1.Replacing fossil fuels 

2.Restoring and protecting ecosystems 

3.Cutting pollutants like methane and soot 

4. Stabilising population growth

5.Converting the economy to carbon-free 

6. Eating less meat
