Earth Hasn’t Warmed This Fast in Tens of Millions of Years

Chemical analyses of ancient #sediments allowed scientists to put together one of the most comprehensive #climate #histories of the planet.

,,,They found that the planet has passed through four distinct climate phases: #warmhouse, #hothouse, #coolhouse and #icehouse states.
Transitions from one state to another have generally depended on changing

#UN Secretary-General launches United in #Science #report

“The five-year period since the signing of the #ParisAgreement on #ClimateChange will be the hottest on human record -- with average global temperatures of 1.1°C above pre-industrial levels. The report also rings the alarm that there is a significant and growing chance of temporarily reaching the 1.5°C threshold in the coming 5 (!) years,” said Mr #Guterres, citing data from the report.

#Klimawandel verursacht hohe wirtschaftliche Schäden

Das Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (#MCC) und das Potsdam-Institut für Klimafolgenforschung (#PIK) die wirtschaftlichen Schäden durch die Klimaerwärmung in diesem Jahrhundert neu kalkuliert und kommen auf einen Verlust der globalen #Wirtschaftsleistung zwischen 7 und 14 Prozent bis zum Jahr 2100.


The impact of #climate conditions on #economic production. Evidence from a global panel of regions

An increase in global mean surface temperature by about 3.5°C until the end of the century would reduce global output by 7–14% in 2100, with even higher damages in tropical and poor regions.
