What will happen to the earth and the world if things continue as they are now?(2)

Here is a list of what will happen in the future if things continue as they are now, and the phenomena that global warming will cause. This rise is predicted to accelerate once a certain line is crossed, and it is assumed to be frightening and out of control.

『Let me begin by listing the items that make up problem 1.

Rising temperatures, extreme weather, food problems, aridity, desertification, deforestation, forest fires, submergence of land, reduced biodiversity (mammals have already declined by an average of 68% between 1970 and 2016), increased pandemic infectious diseases, rising sea temperatures, abnormal breeding of the sabaktobid grasshopper, increased flooding and storms, increased damage from typhoons, hurricanes and cyclones, storm surges, ocean acidification, receding glaciers, reduced fish catches, bleaching and loss of coral reefs, increased heat waves causing heat stroke and tropical infectious diseases, droughts, methane emissions that have 21 times the greenhouse effect of CO2. ・・・・・・ and various other threats are assumed to strike. There are many other problems that can be expected, but what will happen if the global average temperature, which has already risen by more than 1 degree Celsius since the Industrial Revolution, rises to 1.5 degrees Celsius? If it exceeds at least 2 degrees Celsius, the balance of the Earth’s climate system will be disturbed, and it is highly likely that this will lead to a “hot house earth” (greenhouse earth) where the temperature will rise by 4 to 5 degrees Celsius.』
