Losing Earth: The Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (ICPC) indicates a proportionate increase in the effects of global warming and climate change from the 20th century to the 21st century and it does not seem as if the world is going to have any stability for now or in the immediate future.

The cumulative effect in the future would be more severe, destructive, and huge, numerous, worse than previous impacts and occurring in unimaginable areas, resulting in causalities beyond scientific past projections and, of course, the imaginations of humans.
The planet is already experiencing a prevalent feedback impact of its input; the rise in natural disasters is tripling past ages, happening uniformly, and covering a farther bearing.
For example, data shows that the 2005 Hurricane Katrina’s impact, even though it appears to cause more damage affected less area than Hurricane Michael in 2018.
There will continue to be more severe weather, excessive heat, and heavy precipitation events. More extreme and widespread forest fire, consuming vast areas and originating from previous inputs, would become prevalent.
Knowing very well the impact of Australia’s 2019-2020 wildfire, which resulted in the death of over 1 billion animals and contributed enormously to the atmospheric concentration and increasing the frequency of the projected Parts per Million in 2020.
Let’s reduce pollution all over. But wait, will zero greenhouse gas emissions have a positive impact on the earth?
The truth is that even though the planet stops releasing all greenhouse gasses today it will not quench the consequences of climate change.
Warming and sea level will continue to rise, devastating and extreme wildfire and hurricane will continue to occur, drought and heat will be experienced and the earth will face decades of climate disaster, long after the seizure.
But the fact still remains that reducing or ending emissions can minimize the severity of climate impacts and save humanity from losing earth.
Climate change inevitably hits the highest summit and the consequences, as swift as lightning, growing at a greater pace, bound to outcomes that change human experience within every social organization of its occurrence.
It means that past pollution will continue to have effects on the planet and its consequences will remain inevitable, if not worse.
Current greenhouse gas emissions will drive many of the climate change projected through 2050.
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the future will reduce the severity of long-term impacts, but would make no difference to near-term developments that are already underway.
Past emissions will continue to heat the planet, with its very possible and irreversible effects.
