A coalition of thousands of scientists updated the 2019 world scientists' warning on the climate emergency, noting that the world is entering uncharted territory with the capacity to support life under occupation.

SERIOUS THREAT TO PLANETARY VITAL SIGNS

More than 15,000 signatories to the report wrote that the large number of recent temperature records signal serious threats to the planet's "vital signs," The Hill reported.

The term refers to 35 indicators ranging from human population and energy consumption to the loss of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest.

Twenty of these vital signs are currently at record extremes, according to the report.

2023 WAS THE HOTTEST SUMMER ON RECORD

The authors note that 2023 experienced the hottest summer on record and will likely rank among the hottest years ever recorded.

Ocean acidity, glacier thickness and the Greenland ice sheet are reaching all-time lows, while the oceans are warmer than ever.

This could lead to impacts ranging from loss of marine life to intense tropical storms of the kind the planet has already seen.

Research shows that in 2023, threats are emerging in unlikely places, such as flooding in northern China due to extremely hot weather and a storm in the Mediterranean that killed thousands of people, mostly Libyans.

FOSSIL RUBY USE INCREASED AFTER THE PANDEMIC

The warning also highlights the rapid increase in fossil fuel use since the lifting of COVID-19 bans, despite hopes of a "green recovery" in some quarters.
