Why is 1.5 degrees such a big deal?
Почему 1,5 градуса так важны?
Because to warm our entire planet up by 1.5 degrees Celsius
Потому что для нагрева нашей планеты на 1,5 ℃
requires a lot of heat.
требуется очень много тепла.
All this extra heat melts glaciers, which raise sea levels.
Из-за этого дополнительного тепла тают ледники, поднимая уровень океана.
If the ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland melt completely,
Если ледовые покровы Антарктиды и Гренландии полностью растают,
millions of people's homes will be under water.
жилища миллионов людей окажутся под водой.
The extra heat also intensifies weather,
Дополнительное тепло также обостряет погоду,
making wet places wetter, dry places drier
делая влажные места более влажными, сухие — суше,
and increasing the ferocity of storms.
и усиливая бури и штормы.
That 1.5-degree increase also won't be distributed evenly.
Кроме того, повышение температуры на 1,5 ℃ распределится неравномерно.
The coldest nights in the Arctic might get 10 degrees warmer.
Самые холодные ночи в Арктике могут стать теплее на 10 ℃.
The warmest days in Mumbai might get five degrees hotter.
Самые жаркие дни в Мумбае — на 5 ℃ жарче.
Over the past 10,000 years, we've been lucky.
В последние 10 тысяч лет нам крупно везло.
Earth's climate was stable and our civilizations flourished.
Климат Земли был стабилен, и наша цивилизация процветала.
But as our climate gets more unstable, so will our economies and our societies.
Но по мере дестабилизации климата
такая же дестабилизация ожидает экономику и общество.
We'll all suffer,
Пострадаем мы все, при этом самые уязвимые пострадают сильнее всего,
and the vulnerable will be hit hardest,
unless we act now.
если мы не начнём действовать прямо сейчас.
