Why is 1.5 degrees such a big deal?
Mengapa 1,5 derajat celcius menjadi masalah besar?
Because to warm our entire planet up by 1.5 degrees Celsius
Karena untuk membuat planet kita lebih hangat 1,5 derajat celcius
requires a lot of heat.
membutuhkan panas yang besar.
All this extra heat melts glaciers, which raise sea levels.
Panas berlebihan ini melelehkan gletser menyebabkan naiknya permukaan air laut
If the ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland melt completely,
Jika lapisan es Antartika dan Greenland seluruhnya meleleh,
millions of people's homes will be under water.
jutaan rumah akan tenggelam.
The extra heat also intensifies weather,
Panas berlebih juga mengintensifkan cuaca,
making wet places wetter, dry places drier
tempat yang basah jadi makin basah, yang kering jadi makin kering.
and increasing the ferocity of storms.
dan meningkatkan keganasan badai.
That 1.5-degree increase also won't be distributed evenly.
Kenaikan 1,5 derajat tersebut juga tidak akan terdistribusi merata.
The coldest nights in the Arctic might get 10 degrees warmer.
Malam terdingin di Arktik bisa menjadi 10 derajat lebih hangat.
The warmest days in Mumbai might get five degrees hotter.
Hari terhangat di Mumbai bisa menjadi 5 derajat lebih panas.
Over the past 10,000 years, we've been lucky.
Selama 10.000 tahun terakhir, kita beruntung.
Earth's climate was stable and our civilizations flourished.
Iklim bumi stabil dan peradaban kita berkembang.
But as our climate gets more unstable, so will our economies and our societies.
Namun, seiring dengan tak stabilnya iklim, ekonomi dan masyarakat kita pun demikian.
We'll all suffer,
Kita semua menderita,
and the vulnerable will be hit hardest,
dan yang rentan akan terdampak paling parah.
unless we act now.
Kecuali kita bergerak sekarang.
