According to the UN report, climate changes, including strong warming in the Arctic, and other threats will lead to millions of premature deaths in Asia, the middle East and Africa. This was reported on the website of the organization.
The report was prepared by 250 scientists and experts from 70 countries. Experts warn that in the future the expected increase in the number of deaths caused by the effects of global warming, the pollution of fresh water, bacterial resistance to antimicrobial drugs and reduce the fertility of men and women due to factors that cause endocrine disruption and developmental disorders of the nervous system in children.
In addition, even if the goals of the Paris agreement will be reached, it will not stop the rise in average temperatures in the Arctic. By 2050, it will rise by 3-5 degrees Celsius and 5 to 9 degrees by 2080. This will lead to the complete melting of ice in the region and increasing sea levels. This growth was recorded due to the greenhouse gases already emitted and the accumulation of heat in the ocean.
In addition, the volume of permafrost contains billions of tons of carbon will be reduced by 25 percent. This will cause even more warming and will make it impossible to achieve the goal of the Paris agreement to limit temperature increase to two degrees Celsius.
