Global Warming Catching Up Arctic
May 1st, 2017 by Neha Bagoria

Arctic is much warmer place than it use to be a century ago. Infact the accelerating warming rate is twice as fast as rest of the planet. As per the study, from year 1981 to 2001 the warming rate is eight times than the rate of Arctic warming over the last 100 years. Snow coverage area is just half the amount as before.

We will witness global sea level rise by more than three meters in this century alone, according to a new study by university of Southampton scientist. By 2030 every coal plant in European Union should be closed and each one in the world should shut by 2050 to comply with commitments under Paris Agreement on climate change.

Scotland and Ireland are pro towards fossil energy reduction. Germany and Poland still rely much on fossil fuel contributing 54 per cent of EU’s total emission from coal fired plants. Paris Agreement seeks to keep global warming to below 2C, the point at which scientists believe the effects of climate change would become particularly dangerous with increased storms, deadly heatwaves, droughts, wildfires and floods.

Global warming is catching up. It’s time we cut our carbon emissions or ready to pay for it heavily.
