Why is 1.5 degrees such a big deal?
1,5 derece niçin bu kadar önemli?
00:05
Because to warm our entire planet up by 1.5 degrees Celsius
Çünkü tüm gezegenimizi 1,5 ºC ısıtmak için
00:10
requires a lot of heat.
çok fazla ısı gerekiyor.
00:12
All this extra heat melts glaciers, which raise sea levels.
Tüm bu ekstra ısı buzulları eritiyor, deniz seviyelerini yükseltiyor.
00:16
If the ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland melt completely,
Antarktika'nın ve Grönland'ın buz katmanları tamamen erirse
00:19
millions of people's homes will be under water.
milyonlarca insanın evi sular altında kalacak.
00:22
The extra heat also intensifies weather,
Ekstra ısı ayrıca havayı da yoğunlaştırıyor,
00:25
making wet places wetter, dry places drier
nemli yerleri daha nemli, kuru yerleri daha kuru yapıyor
00:28
and increasing the ferocity of storms.
ve fırtınaların şiddetini artırıyor.
00:30
That 1.5-degree increase also won't be distributed evenly.
Bu 1,5 derecelik artış dengeli bir şekilde de dağılmıyor.
00:34
The coldest nights in the Arctic might get 10 degrees warmer.
Arktika'nın en soğuk geceleri 10 derece daha ılık olabilir.
00:38
The warmest days in Mumbai might get five degrees hotter.

00:41
Over the past 10,000 years, we've been lucky.
Son 10 bin yıldır şanslıydık.
00:44
Earth's climate was stable and our civilizations flourished.
Dünya'nın iklimi dengeliydi ve medeniyetler gelişebildi.
00:48
But as our climate gets more unstable, so will our economies and our societies.
Ama iklim daha dengesiz hâle geldikçe ekonomi ve toplumlar da öyle olacak.
00:53
We'll all suffer,
Acısını hepimiz çekeceğiz
00:55
and the vulnerable will be hit hardest,
savunmasız olanlar en ağır şekilde yara alacak,
00:57
unless we act now.
tabii hemen harekete geçmezsek.
