THE Climate Change talks in Paris represent possibly the last chance for the governments of the world to come to a workable deal, which will prevent global temperatures rising to two degrees above pre-industrial
Researchers, led by Jerome Siegel at UCLA, followed three small pre-industrial
societies, two in Africa and one in South America, reasoning that the best way to judge whether sleep habits in the industrialised world are unnatural is to compare them to sleep habits in those few remaining societies on Earth that still live without electricity.
6degF) above pre-industrial
levels and avoid dangerous climate change.
The goal is to stop the global temperature from rising more than 2 degrees Centigrade over pre-industrial
times, in order to avoid catastrophic loss of human life from rising sea levels and severe weather.
The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said global average surface temperatures in 2015 were likely to reach what it called the "symbolic and significant milestone" of 1A Celsius above the pre-industrial
GLOBAL temperatures in 2015 are set to reach 1degC above pre-industrial
levels for the first time, scientists have warned.
The event was one of a series of gatherings to be held in the run-up to the two-week UN climate change conference in Paris in December, at which a new global climate agreement is due to be finalised between developed and developing countries to keep the global carbon emission levels below 2 degree Celsius above pre-industrial
some 40% over pre-industrial
levels, and are set to raise them a lot more.
The core provides the first detailed record of widespread human-produced air pollution in South America from before the Industrial Revolution, and makes Quelccaya one of only a few select sites on the planet where the pre-industrial
human impact on air quality can be studied today.
This means the GCF will have to hold back plans to back green energy projects in developing countries, including Pakistan, ahead of this year's UN-led global climate summit to be held in Paris in December this year to agree on a global climate deal aimed at putting cap on carbon emissions to keep global emission rise to two degree Celsius above pre-industrial
levels," he said.
Using data from the IPCC, the US-based research body's chart below plots four possible "emissions pathways", showing the years when global emissions would hit the point at which the planet would heat up by at least 2[degrees]C above pre-industrial
A big wide marketplace, 18th-century butter cross with original seats (and old b originals on them), with street names like Horsefair, Cornmarket and Beastfair telling of its pre-industrial
