Why is 1.5 degrees such a big deal?
Miért olyan nagy ügy a 1,5 fok?
Because to warm our entire planet up by 1.5 degrees Celsius
Az egész bolygónk 1,5 Celsius-fokkal történő felmelegedése
requires a lot of heat.
rengeteg hőt igényel.
All this extra heat melts glaciers, which raise sea levels.
Ez a sok hő megolvasztja a gleccsereket, amitől a tengerszint megemelkedik.
If the ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland melt completely,
Ha az Antarktisz és Grönland jégtakarói teljesen elolvadnak,
millions of people's homes will be under water.
sok millió ember otthona kerül víz alá.
The extra heat also intensifies weather,
A többlet hő szélsőséges időjárást is okoz,
making wet places wetter, dry places drier
csapadékosabbá, illetve szárazabbá teszi az egyes helyeket,
and increasing the ferocity of storms.
és vadabbá a viharokat.
That 1.5-degree increase also won't be distributed evenly.
Ez a 1,5 fokos emelkedés nem is fog egyenletesen eloszlani.
The coldest nights in the Arctic might get 10 degrees warmer.
Az Északi-sarkvidék leghidegebb éjszakái 10 fokkal melegebbek,
The warmest days in Mumbai might get five degrees hotter.
Mumbai legmelegebb napjai öt fokkal melegebbek lehetnek.
Over the past 10,000 years, we've been lucky.
Az elmúlt 10 000 évben szerencsénk volt.
Earth's climate was stable and our civilizations flourished.
A Föld éghajlata stabil volt, és civilizációink virágoztak.
But as our climate gets more unstable, so will our economies and our societies.
De ahogy éghajlatunk instabilabbá válik, úgy gazdaságaink és társadalmaink is.
We'll all suffer,
Mindannyian szenvedni fogunk,
and the vulnerable will be hit hardest,
a sebezhetőbbek a leginkább,
unless we act now.
hacsak nem cselekszünk most.
