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.
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.
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.
