Why is 1.5 degrees such a big deal?
بۆچی ١.٥ پلە گرنگە؟
Because to warm our entire planet up by 1.5 degrees Celsius
چونکە بۆ گەرمکردنەوەی تەواوی هەسارەکەمان بە ١.٥ پلەی سەدی
requires a lot of heat.
پێویستی بە گەرمییەکی زۆر هەیە.
All this extra heat melts glaciers, which raise sea levels.
ئەم هەموو گەرمییە زۆرە شاخە سەهۆڵەکان دەتوێنێتەوە، ئاستی دەریاکان بەرز دەکاتەوە.
If the ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland melt completely,
ئەگەر بەستەڵەکی جەمسەری و گرینلاند بەتەواوی بتوێتەوە،
millions of people's homes will be under water.
ملیۆنان کەس لە ماڵەکانیان ژێر ئاو دەکەون.
The extra heat also intensifies weather,
هەروەها گەرمی زۆر کەش و هەوا چڕتر دەکات،
making wet places wetter, dry places drier
وا دەکات شوێنە ئاودارەکان شێدارتر، شوێنە وشکەکان وشکتر بن
and increasing the ferocity of storms.
و زۆربوونی زریان زیاد دەکات.
That 1.5-degree increase also won't be distributed evenly.
ئەو ١.٥ پلەیه زیاد دەکات هەروەها بە شێوەیەکی ڕێک دابەش نابێت.
The coldest nights in the Arctic might get 10 degrees warmer.
ساردترین شەوەکانی جەمسەری باکوور لەوانەیە ١٠ پلەی گەرمتر بن.
The warmest days in Mumbai might get five degrees hotter.
گەرمترین ڕۆژەکانی مۆمبای لەوانەیە پێنج پلەی گەرمتر بن.
Over the past 10,000 years, we've been lucky.
لە ماوەی ١٠ هەزار ساڵی ڕابردوودا، ئێمە بەختمان هەبوو.
Earth's climate was stable and our civilizations flourished.
ئاووهەوای زەوی جێگیر بوو و شارستانیەتیەکانمان گەشانەوە بوو.
But as our climate gets more unstable, so will our economies and our societies.
بەڵام کاتێک پلەی گەرمی ناجێگیرتر دەبێت، ئابووری و کۆمەڵگەکانمان ناسەقامگیر دەبن.
We'll all suffer,
هەموومان ئازار دەچێژین،
and the vulnerable will be hit hardest,
و لاوازەکان قورسترین زیانیان پێ دەگات،
unless we act now.
مەگەر ئێستا کار بکەین.
