Scientists Warn of a ‘Fifty-Fifty Chance’ of Temperatures Warming Beyond 1.5C

The Index Today

New research has revealed that the probability of the world surpassing a vital global warming threshold has climbed substantially.

According to BBC News, scientists at the U.K. Met Office contended that there is a fifty-fifty likelihood of the earth warming by over 1.5 degrees in the next five years. Their findings indicate that temperatures will rise between 1.1C and 1.7C compared to pre-industrial levels between 2022 and 2026.

Dr Leon Hermanson of the Met Office said, "I think people are already quite concerned about climate change and it is worrying, it is showing that we continue to warm the planet and we're getting closer to this first threshold that was set in the Paris agreement — and we need to continue doing everything we can to cut the use of fossil fuels."

Although the warming will be temporary, scientists have expressed concerns over the current trajectory of the world’s climate change in view of the wildfires in North America as well as the extreme heat waves presently impacting India and Pakistan, reported BBC News.
