Winter Is (Not) Coming...

Climate change is on everybody’s radar, whether due to the recent climate change activists' campaigns or a noticeable lack of  ‘nip’ in the autumn air. These uncanny feelings are due to humanity's reliance on fossil fuels, the consequences of which can be felt globally. In the wake of this, the annual Climate Summit conference, known as COP27, is taking place. This article aims to discuss the issues surrounding climate change, and the recent proposals to prevent the increase in the temperature of the global surface area. To achieve this, this article will draw upon statistics to demonstrate the science behind climate change, with the aim to encourage conversations surrounding this topic.

Earlier this week, a report published by the Global Carbon Project  was presented at the COP27. Akin to COP26, this report aims to remind countries that the protocols and policies are not enough to keep the planet safe. This is in the hope that governments will pursue more ambitious climate goals. In addition, the World Health Organization  has already demanded that the COP27 encourage mitigation, adaption, financing, and collaboration to overcome climate change.

According to the GCP, the average global temperature is 1.1C, and if this temperature is maintained, the world will see even more climate disasters. US agencies have uncovered that since 2020, natural disasters have only increased, and in 2021, America experienced a Derecho in the Midwest, due to climate change. In addition, Science & Information For Climate has developed this research and found that, in March 2022, the global surface temperature was the highest it has reached in 143 years. This was 1.71F  above the 20thcentury universal average. Furthermore, the UN found that this global average is set to rise to 1.5C , which is derived from humanity’s use of fossil fuels. This will create danger for millions across the world. To remedy these issues, the UN stated that our global temperature, through emissions, needs to drop by 45% before 2030 if there is hope to redeem our planet. However, this has profound implications for our world's economy.  The UK BBC News highlights the issues this causes in less developed countries, as it will stunt their economic growth. Therefore, solutions to this must be addressed throughout the Summit.

Following this, the project has proposed guidelines for countries and their citizens to help reduce the global temperature and use of emissions. The proposed guidelines for UK citizens are as follows: insulate your home, cut food waste, use public transport, and shop green. These adaptions would mean that citizens reduce their overall carbon footprint, which will cut the carbon dioxide emissions released into the atmosphere.

To conclude, I ask yourself, the reader, to reflect. With the Climate Summit coming to an end, do we eagerly await the changes we can bring forward? Or, are our actions, as seen in the haunted statistics, consequently those of murder?
