It is important to know the problems that the world is going through and that are likely to get worse if there is no intensive action by societies around the world. Therefore, information is one of the main weapons to raise people's awareness and call them to take a stance that aims to reduce the effects of climate change. A report for the city newspaper will be one of the means for this awareness. I will do an article with information on climate change and the 24 HOURS OF REALITY: COUNTDOWN TO THE FUTURE event that will be published in the local newspaper and the next day will be posted on the website.
Scientists say there is a 72% chance that 2020 will be the hottest new year ever According to scientific studies, there is a 72% chance that 2020 will be the hottest new year ever. Around 152 million tons of polluting synthetic products in the thin layer of our planet's atmosphere are dumped every 24 hours. As a result, global temperatures are rising very quickly. These are some alerts presented by The Climate Reality Project, a global initiative to clarify climate change. The rising levels of greenhouse gases that retain heat - such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane and nitrous oxide - in the atmosphere are causing the global average temperature to rise. Surface temperatures in each of the past three decades have been successively higher than in any previous decade since 1850. The past five years have been the warmest. And 2020 is likely to be the worst. The biggest sources of greenhouse gases are burning, industrial agriculture, oil production, air and land transport, melting of the Arctic soil layer (or pergelisol), mining and coal plants, industrial processes. Most of the global warming pollution is the burning of fossil fuels. In 2019, the average global surface temperature (both land and sea) was 0.95 degrees Celsius above the 20th century average, making it the second warmest year in history. Heat waves are becoming more frequent in many regions, thanks to human activity. In Brazil, the National Meteorological Institute (Inmet) records in the last week that temperatures are 5ºC above average in parts of the Midwest, Southeast and Tocantins. Researchers in Paraíba, as well as the National Institute of the Semi-Arid (INSA) are also unanimous in saying that global warming will directly affect the Semi-Arid, causing longer periods of drought and more intense rain, in shorter periods, affecting rural activities and living with drought in the region. IPCC scientists say it is very likely (90%) that in the 21st century, heat waves will occur more often and last longer. They further project that global average surface temperatures will increase 0.3-0.7 degrees Celsius between 2016-2035. In all but the most conservative projections, scientists believe that between 2081–2100, the change in global surface temperature is likely to exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius. Faced with these problems, Climate Reality promotes the event “24 Hours of Reality: Countdown to the Future” (24hoursofreality.org) which aims to instigate a global debate that links issues such as the climate crisis, the covid-19 pandemic and the crisis in social justice issues and showing ways to cope. The event is led by former United States Vice President Al Gore and leaders in climate reality and happening around the world; starts at 5 pm on 10 October and continues until the following day, at 5 pm (Brasília time) and will be online at Facebook.com/climatereality. Representativeness in Brazil, Climate Reality Brasil, endorses the “Charter of the Five Measures Against Deforestation”, and requests the adherence to the petition so that the five measures are implemented on an emergency basis. The petition is on the Climate Reality Brasil website at URL www.climaterealityproject.org.br.
