Melting ice sheets and glaciers are raising sea levels and putting millions of people at risk. Heat waves, droughts and floods are getting stronger. The desert areas are advancing. And the frequency and intensity of hurricanes and storms is increasing.

All these situations have something in common: they are the product of climate change generated, mainly, by the burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas.

Climate change is the greatest challenge facing humanity in the 21st century. The World Economic Forum recognized its impacts as the main threat to the global economy in 2018 and 2019.

What is being done to avoid it?

• In 2015, within the framework of the United Nations Convention on Climate Change, the international community agreed to limit the temperature increase to below 2°C in relation to the pre-industrial era, and to make every effort so that it does not exceed 1 .5°C. The United Nations group of climate scientists (IPCC) demonstrated that the latter is the acceptable limit to avoid catastrophic impacts that would change the world we know.

Scientists warn that 1.5ºC of warming would have catastrophic effects: from floods and storms to droughts and heat waves that would cause incalculable economic and social losses; the rise in sea level due to the melting of the poles, which would flood coastal cities and islands; water scarcity and poor harvests that would generate food shortages and the movement of people within countries and towards borders, and irreversible damage to nature that would lead to mass extinctions.

The architect Roberto Guillermo Gomes warned since 2009 about the danger of accelerating feedbacks from global warming. Now the alarms are going off. The accelerated melting phase of the Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica began, it is the size of Florida, it can raise the oceans by 30 cm. and destabilize other adjacent glaciers whose melting would raise the water another 3 meters.

On 10/02/2019, Gomes published the book “Efecto Casandra. Arctic 'Methane Bomb' Analysis: Unanswered Question to Scientists About Abrupt Clathrate Reversal in 2025/30”.

In it, I affirm that "by the average of 2030, it will reach 450 ppm of CO2, if we continue at the same rate of contamination, and as a result of the fateful 2º C that will activate the positive feedbacks that will cause the abrupt thawing of the arctic continental permafrost and after submarine clathrates, which are already showing an active thawing process. 

At the same time the floating ice of the North Pole during the summers will have disappeared, together with the albedo effect and the Arctic Ocean will be warming to 5º to 7º C triggering the release of methane gas hydrates from the bottom. 

Then the global temperature will shoot up to 4º or 6º C and up to 12º C at both poles, starting the accelerated melting of Greenland and Antarctica, being able to raise the oceans up to 70 meters in years and not in millennia, flooding all coastal cities and causing 900 million simultaneous environmental refugees.

What measures to implement?: Prohibit individual combustion cars in all cities of the world, cut off the electricity supply after 8:00 p.m., reduce the operation of thermoelectric plants, reduce air flights by 80%, prohibit tourism, reduce consumption to a minimum, reduce meat intake and replace it with vegetables, stop felling trees and move to planting 30 billion new trees per year, invest capital intensive in the development of fusion reactors, avoid travel , limit overpopulation by authorizing only one child per family.

And in the face of the emergency, apply a comprehensive reengineering of the world's social, economic and political organization system, adding a coordinating supranational structure: the Planetary Eco Government, controlled by a system of Direct Digital Democracy, advised by a Council of Sciences, integrated by scientists from all continents.

And above all, allocate sufficient intensive capital funds to address the global climate emergency in a critical phase. Already the speeches of environmental politicians, of climate scientists with their graphs, have gone to hell, they have been devoured by the new reality of the catastrophe in process.

When should it be done?: Immediately, there is no more time to act preventively. Pollution must be stopped abruptly and at the same time implement medium and long-term measures that allow the future extraction of atmospheric CO2 to stop its inertia of warming. In addition to sustaining the rhythm of the economic system working so that it does not decline.
The new goal is to reach zero carbon emissions by 2030.
