Video: Global warming: Scientists sound the alarm again

Already, global warming is affecting human health so profoundly that the emergency response to climate change cannot be delayed even as the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Scientists argue that if we do not urgently take action to improve the health of the planet, the consequences will be extremely serious.
“Human health is already suffering from global warming and the destruction of the world,” said an editorial published in more than 220 leading magazines ahead of the COP26 climate summit in November this year.
Since the pre-industrial era, the planet's temperature has risen by about 1.1 degrees Celsius. An editorial written by the editor-in-chief of more than a dozen journals, including the Lancet, East African Medical Journal, Brazilian Revista de Saude Publica and International Nursing Review, argues that this circumstance has caused many health problems.
“Over the past 20 years, deaths from heat among people over 65 have increased by more than 50%,” the doctors write. "Higher temperatures have led to increased levels of dehydration and impaired renal function, dermatological malignancies, tropical infections, adverse mental health effects, pregnancy complications, allergies, and cardiovascular and pulmonary disease and mortality."
They also pointed to the decline in agricultural production "hampering efforts to reduce world hunger." Scientists have warned that the consequences that affect the most vulnerable parts of society (such as minorities, children and the lower population) are just the beginning.
Currently, according to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, by 2030, global warming may reach + 1.5 ° C compared to pre-industrial levels. And this, along with the ongoing loss of biodiversity, “risks causing catastrophic health damage that cannot be reversed,” the authors of the article warn.
“Despite the necessary concerns of the COVID-19 world, we cannot wait until the pandemic is over to begin to accelerate the reduction of emissions,” they say.
In a statement ahead of the editorial, the head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said: “The risks from climate change can outweigh the risks of any single disease. The COVID-19 pandemic will end, but there is no vaccine for the climate crisis. Every action we take to limit emissions and warming brings us closer to a healthier and safer future.”
The report also notes that many governments have met the COVID-19 threat with "unprecedented funding," and called for a "similar emergency response" to the environmental crisis, highlighting the benefits of such measures. “Improving air quality alone will bring health benefits that easily offset the global cost of reducing emissions,” the scientists said.
The authors also stated that "governments must make fundamental changes to the organization of our society and economy and the way we live."
When we “engage” in healing frequencies, our body and mind vibrate in harmony. We feel it when we turn on the radio, and our favorite song comes from it, or when we sit quietly and listen to the sound of the rain. But how exactly does it work, how does sound heal us? Hans Jenny, a Swiss medical doctor from Basel, has put together fascinating experiments in which we can literally "see" how sound works
Unfortunately, most people still don't believe in the dire consequences of global warming. It may take time for them to change their minds, although the Earth does not have it. Let's take a look at what exactly makes global warming so deadly to humans
Climatology is a global deception of the World Government. The role of humanity in warming is negligible
The share of anthropogenic CO2 in the total greenhouse effect accounted for only 1%, and a 5% decrease in its role under the Kyoto Protocol meant a decrease in the total greenhouse effect by 0.05%! The Paris Agreement is a pseudoscientific remedy for climate homeopathy in the fight against global warming
US President Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris Climate Agreement. And I will try to explain why this is absolutely the right thing to do and why the doctrine of Global Warming is the biggest scam of our days
Scientists accidentally found a substance that decomposes plastic in a few days. They plan to focus their efforts on further improvements - they already have ideas on how to speed up the decomposition by a factor of 100
