Why is 1.5 degrees such a big deal?
لماذا تعتبر 1.5 درجة أمرًا مهمًا؟
بصوت "كريستين بيل"
Because to warm our entire planet up by 1.5 degrees Celsius
لأن تدفئة كوكبنا بالكامل بمقدار 1.5 درجة مئوية
requires a lot of heat.
تتطلب الكثير من الحرارة.
All this extra heat melts glaciers, which raise sea levels.
كل هذه الحرارة الزائدة تعمل على إذابة الأنهار الجليدية
التي ترفع مستوى سطح البحر.
If the ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland melt completely,
إذا ذابت الصفائح الجليدية في القارة القطبية الجنوبية
وجرينلاند تمامًا
millions of people's homes will be under water.
فسيكون الملايين من منازل الناس تحت الماء.
The extra heat also intensifies weather,
تؤدي الحرارة الزائدة أيضًا إلى تكثيف الطقس
making wet places wetter, dry places drier
مما يجعل الأماكن الرطبة أكثر رطوبة والجافة أكثر جفافاً
and increasing the ferocity of storms.
وتزيد من شراسة العواصف.
That 1.5-degree increase also won't be distributed evenly.
لن يتم أيضًا توزيع هذه الزيادة البالغة 1.5 درجة بالتساوي.
The coldest nights in the Arctic might get 10 degrees warmer.
قد ترتفع درجة حرارة أبرد ليالي القطب الشمالي
بمقدار 10 درجات.
The warmest days in Mumbai might get five degrees hotter.
قد تسخن أحر أيام مومباي بخمس درجات حرارة.
Over the past 10,000 years, we've been lucky.
لقد كنا محظوظين خلال العشرة آلاف عام الماضية.
Earth's climate was stable and our civilizations flourished.
كان مناخ الأرض مستقرًا وازدهرت حضاراتنا.
But as our climate gets more unstable, so will our economies and our societies.
ولكن مع ازدياد عدم استقرار مناخنا
تزداد حالة عدم استقرار اقتصاداتنا ومجتمعاتنا.
We'll all suffer,
سنعاني جميعًا وسيتضرر الضعفاء أكثر
and the vulnerable will be hit hardest,
unless we act now.
ما لم نتحرك الآن.
