A very good contribution by Prof. Will Steffen from Australia provides answers. The contribution was translated into German by a team of volunteers in cooperation with the Sientists for Future. The difference between 2 degrees and 4 degrees warming is life or death.

30 degrees in Siberia and sheep cold in the Sahara

The reason for this is a polar jet, which has come to a standstill at the moment. Unlike normal, at the moment cold air is carried far south and warm air far north.

05.06.2020 Author: Isolde Moussot Translator: Isolde Moussot Original language: de

The cause of the landslide is the sudden onset of thawing weather and an abrupt rise in temperature from 10 to 20 degrees Celsius.

These records started in 1979, and in parts of Siberia it was even 10 degrees warmer.  It was much warmer in Alaska and Antarctica. The CO2 concentration also reports new records, at the Zugspitze 418 ppm in March 2020, which is 3 ppm more than in March 2019.

21,000 tons of oil ran into a river. The causes are still being investigated.  Update: The reason for oil spills is the thawing of the permafrost soil. A lintel of the oil tank has given way because of the softened soil.

One third of pasture land and a quarter of all arable land and forests worldwide are affected. Biodiversity and thus life in the soil is also threatened. As a result, the regeneration of the soil is also at risk.
