Why is 1.5 degrees such a big deal?
De ce 1,5 grade reprezintă o problemă atât de mare?
Because to warm our entire planet up by 1.5 degrees Celsius
Deoarece pentru a încălzi întreaga planetă cu 1,5 grade
requires a lot of heat.
necesită multă căldură.
All this extra heat melts glaciers, which raise sea levels.
Toată această căldură suplimentară topește ghețarii, ridicând nivelul mării.
If the ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland melt completely,
Dacă stratul de gheață din Antarctica și Groenlanda se topește complet,
millions of people's homes will be under water.
casele a milioane de oameni vor fi sub apă.
The extra heat also intensifies weather,
Căldura suplimentară influențează și vremea,
making wet places wetter, dry places drier
făcând zonele umede mai umede, iar pe cele uscate mai uscate
and increasing the ferocity of storms.
și intensificând puterea furtunilor.
That 1.5-degree increase also won't be distributed evenly.
Acea creștere de 1,5 grade nu va fi distribuită uniform.
The coldest nights in the Arctic might get 10 degrees warmer.
Nopțile cele mai reci din zona arctică ar putea fi cu zece grade mai calde.
The warmest days in Mumbai might get five degrees hotter.
Zilele cele mai calde din Mumbai ar putea fi cu cinci grade mai calde.
Over the past 10,000 years, we've been lucky.
Am avut noroc în ultimii 10.000 de ani.
Earth's climate was stable and our civilizations flourished.
Clima Pământului a fost stabilă, iar civilizațiile au înflorit.
But as our climate gets more unstable, so will our economies and our societies.
Dar cu cât clima devine mai instabilă, va destabiliza economia și societatea.
We'll all suffer,
Vom fi afectați cu toții,
and the vulnerable will be hit hardest,
dar cei vulnerabili vor suferi cel mai mult
unless we act now.
dacă nu acționăm acum.
