Large coastal cities are under severe threat because of global warming, which this year increased the temperature by one degree. The concentration of greenhouse gases reached a record
Large coastal cities such as Shanghai, Mumbai, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires are under the threat of sea level rise even with an increase of 2 degrees Celsius global temperature.

This phenomenon, which could wipe out large cities of the planet partially, could however be limited if action is taken, according to a US report published a few days before the climate conference in Paris.

Even if the warming is limited to 2 ° C compared to the preindustrial era -the main objective of the conference Paris- the sea level rise “represents a long-term existential threat to many cities and coastal regions,” explains Ben Strauss, one of the authors of the report by the research center Climate Central.

However, for the first time, the global average surface temperature of the Earth will be in 2015 a degree Celsius above pre-industrial levels, announced the British Met Office meteorological agency.

“It is clear that human influence is leading to unknown territories modern climate,” said Stephen Belcher, the Met Office.

Specifically, the temperature increase will 1,02º regarding the level of the period 1850-1900, according to a forecast based on data collected between January and September.

Belcher denied that the increase has to do with El Nino, the periodic phenomenon in which warming of the waters of the equatorial Pacific Ocean that has a global impact occurs.

Early indications are that 2016 will be similarly warm, but that does not mean that the increase will be repeated in subsequent years.

The news comes three weeks after the Paris conference (cop21), which aims to close a global agreement to limit the rise in average global temperature to two degrees Celsius, which the Met Office still believes possible.

“Increases in global sea level, caused by the warming of the oceans and melting, take longer to respond to increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases to the air temperature,” the Met Office.

“We’ve seen an average sea level rise of about 20 centimeters since pre-industrial times, and that’s a third of what you might see by 2100 in a world with increasing temperatures 2nd” he said.

However, it may slow the phenomenon drastically reducing the emission of greenhouse gases, says Strauss. “We still have many possibilities” to act, he stresses.

If emissions continue at the current rate and cause warming of 4 ° C, the level of the oceans would rise 8.9 m average, which would be submerged lands in which 600 million people currently live.

If the increase was 3 ° C (the resulting figure if promises made so far to curb emissions states met) the sea level rise of 6.4 m, covering areas where 400 million people live today.
2nd increase with the rise would be 4.7 m in average (3 to 6.3 m) and affect more than half of people. If the increase is limited to 1.5 °, as requested by the island states, the most vulnerable, the water would rise 2.9 m.

China is one of the countries that would be most beaten because with an increase of 4 ° C, high water affect a territory populated today by 145 million people (a figure that would be half with an increase of + 2 ° C).

The study does not take into account demographic trends and the eventual construction of infrastructure such as dams.

The level of concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new record in 2014, said in its annual report, the World Meteorological Organization, which calls for urgent action to curb climate change.

“We are entering uncharted territory with terrifying speed,” the director of WMO, Michel Jarraud said in a statement. “Every year we say that we no longer have time. We have to act now to cut emissions of greenhouse gases if we want to be able to keep the temperature rise to manageable levels, “he added.

The report, which does not measure emissions of greenhouse gases but its concentration in the atmosphere shows that the CO2 increased to 397.7 parts per million (ppm) in the atmosphere last year.

The report, which does not measure emissions of greenhouse gases but its concentration in the atmosphere shows that the CO2 increased to 397.7 parts per million (ppm) in the atmosphere last year.

That means higher global temperatures, more extreme weather events such as heat waves, floods, melting ice and rising sea levels and acidification, “he said.

The official stressed that the CO2, the main cause of global warming, can remain in the atmosphere for centuries and oceans even longer.

Methane also hit a new high concentration in the atmosphere to 1833 ppm in 2014, according to the report.
60% of methane emissions due to human activity, particularly livestock and the exploitation of fossil fuels and the atmospheric concentration of this gas has increased 254% over pre-industrial levels, says WMO .

Nitrogen oxide, whose impact on the climate is 300 times more important than CO2 and contributes to the destruction of the ozone layer, posted a concentration in the atmosphere of 327.1 parts per billion last year, 121% more than in the preindustrial era.

Emissions of this gas should be 40% to humans, mainly because of fertilizers and industrial activity.

REPORT OF DR. HANSEN
“To prevent the temperature from rising two degrees Celsius more is not enough,” concluded Dr. James Hansen, climate change expert and former NASA scientist. As explained in their study published in the journal European Geoscience Union, 1 degree over global warming could be catastrophic for humanity, because in just 50 years, the sea level will rise 3-8 meters.

* This report, once collated and confirmed by the scientific community, changes the picture of the situation on climate change and puts us in planetary emergency since we are close to reach 1 over global average temperature. Hence the need for extreme measures such as emergency and intensive Solidarity Fund 2% of world GDP and Eco Government Planetarium. We face a global flood box, where 1 2030 average temperature over the first 30 centimeters and ocean elevation reached. To avoid this you need to go to zero net emissions by 2025, replacing the entire energy matrix. Here we will need to fund capital-intensive and a political and economic coordination, in ecological terms, on all countries globally.

This new situation means that we have half time before the global flood and that it will reach five copies if the fateful 2nd global average temperature.
