Global average temperature Increases in alarming rate! Ice cap may melt completely by 2060!

Experts warn that global temperatures could rise by 4 degrees Celsius by 2060. North Pole ice cap could melt completely during the polar summer. The oceans would rise considerably.

A recent study by United Nations Environment Programme  highlighted the fact that the measures included climatic in Copenhagen are not enough to prevent temperatures to rise by more than 2 degrees Celsius.

Thus, if carbon dioxide emissions would be reduced successfully, global temperatures would rise between 2.5 and 5 degrees Celsius. Without reducing emissions by 7 degrees by 2100.

Scientists at the University of Exeter have warned that if CO2 emissions are not stopped significant, global temperatures would rise by 4 degrees by 2070. But if this phenomenon is doubled and the inability of the oceans to absorb toxic gases, enhancing global warming, the temperature rise could be achieved in 2060.

Consequently, about 50 years we could see the disappearance of ice at the North Pole during the polar summer, the loss of coral reefs or withdrawal of most Amazonian jungle.

In addition, sea levels could rise between half a meter and 2 meters by 2100.
