A.D. Although greenhouse gas emissions have decreased due to locks caused by the CVD-19 epidemic in 2020, the amount of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere remains high, the World Meteorological Organization said on Monday.
At the beginning of the epidemic, it was hoped that regular activities (such as transportation) would help curb greenhouse gases. By 2020, carbon dioxide emissions will fall by 6.4 percent, or 2.5 billion tons. US emissions drop by 13 percent
However, emissions have not diminished as much as expected, as many of the sources responsible for regulating carbon dioxide are now large producers, such as the Amazon rainforest.
Trees play an important role in absorbing carbon dioxide, but the Amazon rainforest is producing more carbon dioxide than it currently consumes. Part of this is due to deforestation, but high temperatures lead to low rainfall, which worries the trees and they die quickly. Although there are no human activities such as air travel, these natural settings do not emit the same emissions as before.
Carbon dioxide levels increased by 149 percent before the start of the human industry in 1750. Other greenhouse gases, such as methane and nitrous oxide, accounted for 262 percent and 123 percent, respectively, before industry.
The findings will serve as a basis for next week’s COP26 United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Glasgow, Scotland.
“With the current rise in greenhouse gas emissions, we will see an increase in temperatures by the end of this century. “We are out of the way.”
The United Nations Environment Program says the world needs to reduce carbon emissions by 7.6 percent annually to prevent the planet from overheating before reaching 1.5 degrees Celsius. . The world is not on track to achieve this goal.
“Our earth’s last significant supply of CO2 was discovered 3-5 million years ago, when the temperature was 2-3 degrees Celsius and the sea level was now 10-20 meters higher,” Tala said. But at that time, there were not 7.8 billion people.
