Oceans turning of a friend to the foe; Mumbai, Chennai, Kochi vulnerable

Precisely the Very Same oceans Which nourished human Development Have Been poised to unleash Distress on an International scale unless the carbon Contamination destabilizing Earth’s marine environment is brought to heel, warns a draft UN report


Destructive changes set in motion could see a continuous decrease in fish stocks, even a hundred-fold or more growth in the damages Brought on by superstorms, and countless millions of individuals displaced by rising seas, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report on oceans and Earth’s arctic zones, Called the cryosphere 30 percent of the northern hemisphere’s permafrost could melt century’s end unleashing billions of tonnes of carbon and hastening global warming

The Big Four — China, United States, Europe, and India — all confront catastrophic sea – and – ice-related effects, but none appear ready only announce more ambitious targets for purging carbon out of their economies.

60 percent of global fossil fuel-based emissions arise from these areas
India: Mumbai and other important coastal cities such as Chennai and Kochi are exceptionally vulnerable to sea level rise

China: Shanghai, Ningbo, Taizhou, and yet another half-dozen major coastal towns are in harm’s way, ” the report states

United States: New York, Miami, and other vulnerable towns could easily be overrun by sea increase

Europe: Cities such as Amsterdam, Venice, Hamburg confront the most immediate danger in the rising sea level

Low-lying megacities and small island countries will encounter”extreme sea-level events” annually

From 2100

Annual flooding damages are expected to increase 100 to 1,000 fold

Individuals expected to be displaced from international sea waterline rise

“When you think about the political instability that’s been triggered by rather tiny levels of migration now, I shudder to consider this upcoming world when thousands of individuals are moving since the sea is eating their territory.”

Cleans function as a sponge for those ill-effects of climate change. With this, global warming would have left Earth’s surface intolerably hot. Oceans consume:

90%warmth produced by greenhouse gas emissions since 1970

25 percent of CO2 emitted

Acidification is interrupting the sea essential food chain

Marine heatwaves are creating vast oxygen-depleted dead zones.’
