4. What are the consequences of global warming?

If the main objective of the Paris Agreement is not achieved, to maintain the temperature rise to less than 2 °C from its pre-industrial level by the end of this century, and the temperature will increase three, four or more degrees centigrade, it is expected to be produce an unprecedented environmental catastrophe. We would see to droughts, fires, meteorological phenomena and famines of enormous magnitudes. The melting of the ice from the poles and glaciers could occur, which would increase the level of oceans and seas, placing the most vulnerable populations on islands and coasts at high risk. Desertification of the Amazon and other forests would increase, and the greenhouse effect would intensify. With extinction of many species, the biological diversity, food chains and the balance of life on the planet would be disrupted, in a difficult spiral to imagine. It would assist in the exponential reproduction of other species such as insects, bacteria and viruses, increasing diseases and causing new extinctions of species, among which could be that of Homo sapiens.
