Clairvoyant predictions of severe weather were made in a 2012 study on the planet’s climate.
Temperatures throughout Europe are breaking records as heat waves grow more frequent. Record highs are being seen in cities across the continent.
A catastrophic flood that causes extensive devastation, particularly in low-income countries that are ill-equipped to deal with such catastrophes.
Hurricane destruction worsens. Rising global dry periods are increasing the danger of starvation in certain regions of Africa.
The world is now experiencing “unprecedented extremes” as a result of the intensification and proliferation of severe weather patterns throughout the planet.
It is. In addition to this, this warning and prognosis for the future was offered by prominent climate specialists working for the United Nations more than a decade ago.
In 2012, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a special report on extreme events, catastrophes, and climate change.
This study caused a paradigm shift in how people throughout the globe thought about the potential risks associated with global warming.
A changing climate increases the frequency, intensity, geographical extent, length, and timing of extreme weather and climate, which may lead to never-before-seen extremes.
The report did exactly what a climate change study is supposed to do, which is provide us with advanced notice of an impending disaster so that we can prepare for it.
Michael Oppenheimer, a climate scientist at Princeton University and study co-author, said, “The report was predictive.” The world remained as usual.
Some governments and people paid heed, while others didn’t. I think this shows that tragedies must touch close to home before people care.
