Why is 1.5 degrees such a big deal?
Защо 1.5 градуса са толкова много?
Because to warm our entire planet up by 1.5 degrees Celsius
Защото за да се затопли цялата ни планета с 1.5 градуса по Целзий
requires a lot of heat.
се изисква много топлина.
All this extra heat melts glaciers, which raise sea levels.
Цялата тази топлина топи ледниците, което повишава нивото на океаните.
If the ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland melt completely,
Ако ледената покривка на Антарктика и Гренландия изчезнат напълно,
millions of people's homes will be under water.
домовете на милиони хора ще се намират под вода.
The extra heat also intensifies weather,
Допълнителната топлина също така усилва времето,
making wet places wetter, dry places drier
правейки влажните места сухи, сухите места още по-сухи
and increasing the ferocity of storms.
и усилвайки жестокостта на бурите.
That 1.5-degree increase also won't be distributed evenly.
Това покачване на температурата няма да бъде разпределено точно.
The coldest nights in the Arctic might get 10 degrees warmer.
Най-студените нощи в Антарктика може да станат с около 10 градуса по-топли.
The warmest days in Mumbai might get five degrees hotter.
Най-топлите дни в Мумбай може да се стоплят с още 5 градуса.
Over the past 10,000 years, we've been lucky.
През последните 10 000 години сме били с голям късмет.
Earth's climate was stable and our civilizations flourished.
Климатът на Земята е бил стабилен и цивилизациите са се развивали.
But as our climate gets more unstable, so will our economies and our societies.
Но с нестабилността на климата ще дойде и тази на икономиката и обществото ни.
We'll all suffer,
Всички ще страдаме,
and the vulnerable will be hit hardest,
и най-уязвимите ще бъдат най-засегнати,
unless we act now.
освен ако не действаме веднага.
