Most of America’s 107,000 gas stations can fill several cars every five or 10 minutes at multiple pumps. vehicle fleet, considered crucial to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions driving climate change. The new assessment, like its predecessor Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C

Based on his work there, he created the world’s first global air quality model in which air pollution affected the weather and the weather affected air pollution, thus forging his hybrid science career. Happy Earth Day 2021!

in 2016, set a target of keeping global warming to no more than 2 degrees C above pre-industrial levels, with an ambitious goal of keeping it below 1.5 To achieve this stricter goal, global greenhouse gas emissions would have to be slashed in half from current levels by 2030. The combined emissions from 1750 to 2030 would add up to 1 meter of sea-level rise by 2300, with devastating consequences for coastal communities.

More recently, the situation surrounding the melting of Arctic sea ice has inspired me with a sense of terror as well. It is true that we have always heard ‘scary’ stories about sea ice disappearing and polar bears going extinct. Arctic sea ice extent averaged for September 2020 was 3.92
