Meeresspiegel steigt stärker als bisher angenommen

Die Gletscher, Permafrostböden und Ozeane weltweit verändern sich mit dem Klimawandel im Laufe des 21. Jahrhunderts markant. Dies zeigt der am Mittwoch in Monaco veröffentlichte neue Bericht des Weltklimarates (IPCC). Der Meeresspiegel wird bis 2100 um 43 bis 84 Zentimeter steigen und Gebiete unter Wasser setzen, in denen heute Hunderte von Millionen Menschen leben. Gletscher weltweit verlieren zwischen 2015 und 2100 18 bis 36 Prozent ihrer Masse, jene in Europa gar über 80 Prozent. Bei weiterhin hohen Treibhausgas-Emissionen könnten bis 2100 49 bis 89 Prozent der wenig tiefen Permafrostböden auftauen und damit an Stabilität einbüssen.

Land is under pressure from humans and climate change, but it is part of the solution

Land is already under growing human pressure and climate change is adding to these pressures. At the same time, keeping global warming to well below 2 °C can be achieved only by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors including land and food, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said in its latest report on Thursday.
