Why is 1.5 degrees such a big deal?
چرا ۱.۵ درجه انقدر مهم است؟
Because to warm our entire planet up by 1.5 degrees Celsius
چون برای اینکه دمای کل سیاره زمین را ۱.۵ درجه بالا ببریم،
requires a lot of heat.
به گرمای زیادی نیاز داریم.
All this extra heat melts glaciers, which raise sea levels.
این گرمای اضافی یخچال‌های طبیعی را آب می‌کند که سطح دریا را بالا می‌برد.
If the ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland melt completely,
اگر قطعات یخی قطب جنوب و گرینلند بطور کامل ذوب شود،
millions of people's homes will be under water.
خانه‌های میلیون‌ها نفر به زیر آب می‌رود.
The extra heat also intensifies weather,
گرمای اضافی آب‌و هوا را بدتر می‌کند،
making wet places wetter, dry places drier
جاهای خشک را خشک‌تر و جاهای مرطوب را مرطوب‌تر می‌کند،
and increasing the ferocity of storms.
و شدت طوفان‌ها را افزایش می‌دهد.
That 1.5-degree increase also won't be distributed evenly.
افزایش یک و نیم درجه‌ای بطور یکسان در زمین پخش نخواهد شد.
The coldest nights in the Arctic might get 10 degrees warmer.
سردترین شب‌های قطب شمال ممکن است ده درجه گرمتر شود.
The warmest days in Mumbai might get five degrees hotter.
گرمترین روزهای بمبئی ممکن است پنج درجه گرمتر شود.
Over the past 10,000 years, we've been lucky.
طی ده هزار سال گذشته ما خوش‌شانس بودیم.
Earth's climate was stable and our civilizations flourished.
آب‌وهوای زمین ثبات داشت و تمدن‌ها شکوفا شدند.
But as our climate gets more unstable, so will our economies and our societies.
اما همانطور که آب‌وهوا بی‌ثبات می‌شود، اقتصاد و جوامع ما هم بی‌ثبات می‌شود.
We'll all suffer,
همه ما با هم رنج می‌بریم.
and the vulnerable will be hit hardest,
و کسانیکه ضعیف‌ترند ضربه سخت‌تری خواهند خورد،
unless we act now.
مگر اینکه امروز وارد عمل شویم.
