The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported on the real and immediate effects of global warming. And she prepared a detailed action plan to save the planet and humanity from this phenomenon. The main postulate is that there is no more time for maneuvers, it’s necessary to act right now and it’s extremely tough. Because if the air warms to all 2 °, then we are waiting for a failure of the main grains, rice, corn and wheat, a surge of malaria and dengue fever. And, as a result, the total impoverishment of millions of people, the failure of many charity programs, the destruction of social institutions, famine, war and the extinction of entire continents. But a chance to stop it.
Firstly, all the energy sector in the world should forget about coal in principle, and a CO2 trap should be put on each exhaust pipe of all mechanisms. By the 2050th, 85% of the total generation in the world needs to be transferred to renewable energy sources, the rest is from nuclear power plants or plants using natural gas. The amount of CO2 emissions should be reduced by 90% everywhere due to the transition to electricity and hydrogen technologies. After 15 years, the aircraft must become a hybrid, and the ships move at the expense of wind and solar energy.
Where there are now fields and pastures, it will be necessary to plant forests, in extreme cases, rapeseed and other crops used for energy production. Food needs to be obtained from vertical urban farms, where the symbiosis of the newest GMO crops and microbes will allow to collect a sufficiently large crop with minimal consumption of fertilizers and water. Huge farms producing edible algae will appear on the coast, and anyone who wants delicacies will be able to buy biosynthesized analogues of meat, fish and exotic fruits.
In terms of numbers, this plan is quite realistic. But how to make world governments destroy numerous traditional industries, force billions of people to save and sacrifice their comfort, and corporations to abandon enrichment and mobilize for the illusory idea of saving all of humanity? There is no simple and clear answer to this question even in the face of a global crisis.js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/ru_RU/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.8”; 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
