0.2℃

  In October 2018, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report saying that global warming must be controlled within 1.5°C by the end of this century. Otherwise, after 2030, the world will usher in devastating extreme weather. It has now been nearly 4 years, and the average global surface temperature has been (1.2 ± 0.1) °C higher than that in 1850-1990, and we are still 0.2 °C away from 1.5 °C.
  What will 0.2°C bring?
  It will lead to an increase in the instability of the earth’s atmospheric system, making it more prone to disaster events such as extreme heavy rainfall, bringing greater uncertainty to the earth’s atmosphere and hydrosphere, and causing food security, water shortages, poverty, Floods, droughts, species extinctions, public health, violent conflicts and more. In 2022, the high temperature problem is particularly prominent. The global average temperature in June is about 0.4 °C higher than normal, the highest since 1979. The highest temperature in East Asia, Europe, and North America at the same time period has broken historical extremes.
  The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said that global warming in the past 50 years is occurring at an unprecedented rate since the past 2,000 years, and the instability of the climate system has increased. “.
  In the face of this alarm, at the social level as a whole, we need to strengthen the overall resilience, face more frequent incidents with a calm attitude, and have the ability to use the shortest time to heal faster when the entire social system encounters fluctuations. return to a steady state. Disaster risk reduction depends on the construction of infrastructure on the one hand, and the resilience of society on the other. Resilience includes institutional capacity building and knowledge system building. It is one of the most solid guarantees for us to deal with risks.
  For us personally, families and individuals also have ways to increase resilience, such as paying attention to and understanding weather information, which helps to respond to disaster warning information in advance; there are also natural disaster insurance and other practices to transfer disaster losses and respond to disaster situations. The acquisition of the ability to help each other, etc., are the most economical and smartest ways to help reduce disaster losses.
  Don’t underestimate 0.2℃, and don’t underestimate our power. Our strength is very important. Driving a car less, taking a plane less, buying a piece of clothing less, using less disposable items, and eating less meat are all manifestations of your strength.
  0.2°C is the safest way to decompose to everyone.
