The Paris Agreement described the increase of 2º of the Planet as the frontier that would mark the climatic catastrophe at the end of the 21st century. The IPCC, the experts of the intergovernmental group, already said that two degrees were too many degrees and that it was about ensuring that the difference between the pre-industrial temperature and that of 2100 was not greater than 1.5º.
Reach reduce half a degree the hypothesis of global warming and apocalyptic is, for now, the ultimate goal of the international community. But it turns out that the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has just diagnosed that in 2026 there will be a 50% chance of reaching that magic number. We did not think it would be so close, although the IPCC already spoke of 2040 as the expected date of the inexorable arrival of the 1.5º if we did nothing (or more than the little we do) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In the midst of so many numbers and so many cosmic omens, better that we dedicate ourselves to the tantric ‘om’, the vibration that “is the first sound, the frequency of the universe”, I don’t know exactly what it means, but it appears in all spiritual relaxation manuals as the first action to calm things down.
