The UN summarizes climate science by saying that things are going wrong.
In a new report that compiles the most recent climate change research, the United Nations claims that the world is "going in the wrong direction"
with weather disasters costing $200 million every day and an impending climate catastrophe.
In its most recent stern statement regarding global warming, the WMO claimed weather-related catastrophes have multiplied by five over the past 50 years,
killing an average of 115 people every day, and the situation is only going to get worse.
In order to blame fossil fuels, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres referenced the floods in Pakistan,
the heat waves in Europe, and the droughts in areas like China, the Horn of Africa, and the United States.
The new magnitude of these catastrophes is not natural. They are the cost of humanity's addiction to fossil fuels, he said.
The study was based on information gathered by multiple U.N. agencies and partners estimated that there is a 48% possibility that the rise in global temperature
over pre-industrial levels will surpass 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) in the following five years.
There is a 93% likelihood that one of the following five years will break records for heat.
