To achieve the long-term goal of the Paris Agreement of limiting global warming to below 2°C in the 21st century, the 6th UN-IPCC report recommends continuing large-scale reductions in carbon emissions. If very-high emissions are seen, warming could reach 5.7°C by 2100.
In a study conducted by ICON, which involved 280 patients, 173 received at least one dose of Ivermectin. After a careful analysis, it was found that the overall mortality amongst those given Ivermectin stood at 15%—significantly lower than other subjects in the study (25.2%).
The 6th UN-IPCC report suggests the impact of climate change at 1.5°C global warming will be much less than that at 2°C.
The report says that at 2°C global warming and above, the magnitude of the change in droughts, and heavy and mean precipitation, will be more severe than those at 1.5°C. Therefore, the impact of climate change at 2°C warming would be non-linearly detrimental in scale.
Besides sea level rise, there may be many upper ocean changes like stratification, acidification, and deoxygenation.
The 6th UN-IPCC report outlines several ongoing changes in the oceans, besides the rise in sea levels and temperature. Changes like increased stratification, acidification and deoxygenation are likely to have many unknown implications other than climate change.
The 6th UN-IPCC report advocates for net-zero carbon dioxide emissions, with major reductions in other greenhouse gases.
According to the 6th UN-IPCC report, a net-zero state of carbon dioxide emissions is a fundamental prerequisite for the stabilisation of global warming and abrupt climate changes (excluding the rise in sea levels, which is likely to continue for several centuries).
Some high-impact outcomes of climate change, like ice sheet collapse and abrupt ocean circulation changes, have a low likelihood.
The 6th UN-IPCC report does not exclude high-impact outcomes, like ice sheet collapse and abrupt ocean circulation changes within the expected range of carbon emissions. These cannot be completely ruled out.
The 6th UN-IPCC report cautions about an increase in the intensity and variability of global monsoon precipitation.
A major implication of global warming is the increased unpredictability and intensity of monsoon precipitation worldwide. The average precipitation is forecasted to increase overall, but the regional variability is likely to worsen by about 7% for each 1°C of warming.
The 6th UN-IPCC report suggests that human-induced climate change will not spare any inhabited region throughout the world.
According to the 6th UN-IPCC report, all inhabited regions of the Earth are more frequently encountering extreme climates, like land and marine heatwaves, heavy precipitation, tropical cyclones, and agricultural or ecological droughts.
According to the 6th UN-IPCC report, the evidence supporting global warming and its adverse effects are “unequivocal.” The report reiterates that human activity, over the last two centuries, has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land by producing excess greenhouse gases.
In a forecast that could risk many coastal habitations, the 6th UN report concluded that sea levels would (at least) rise between 0.5 to 1 metres by 2100. In the unfortunate circumstance of complete ice sheet melting, sea levels might rise by up to 65 metres.
The 6th UN-IPCC report cautions that some of the effects of global warming, like rising sea levels, will persist over the long term.
According to the 6th UN-IPCC report, even if humans achieve the Paris Agreement goals of not exceeding the warming beyond 1.5°C, the sea levels will continue to rise by 2-3 metres over the next few centuries, because of the accumulated and long-term effects of global warming.
The 6th UN-IPCC report attests global warming is increasing the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events, like heat waves.
234 distinguished scientists from 60 countries have concluded in the 6th UN-IPCC report that global warming is responsible for increasing extreme weather events, like heatwaves, droughts, tropical cyclones, and reductions in arctic and glacial ice covers.
