Global Warming already took a toll on the climatic conditions of the globe. A panel of the United Nations said that the world is quite close to the climatic disruptions of the earth and it is not centuries away. Human beings are to be blamed for the drastic changes in the climatic conditions. This resulted in the deadly heatwaves, gargantuan hurricanes, thunderstorms and other natural disasters. 5 lakh acres of the forest is burnt in California, USA. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called this a 'Code Red for Humanity'. His statement told "The alarm bells are deafening. This report must sound a death knell for coal and fossil fuels before they destroy our planet".

Activist Greta Thunberg called for the governments to mount massive pressure on the people and the media to act. The UN COP26 Climatic Conference will happen in Glasgow, Scotland and the United Nations is keen to write about the ambitious climatic action to all the nations of the globe. An IPCC Report from 14,000 scientific studies revealed how the climatic change is altering the natural world and about future circumstances. The global temperature is likely to cross 1.5 degrees Celsius which is equal to 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit within in 20 years. Most of the disruption happened due to the reduced level of greenhouse gases. It is mostly carbon dioxide that is produced through burning fossil fuels.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson responded to the report saying that it is a wake-up call for the world and take action now. Joe Biden said "We can’t wait to tackle the climate crisis. The signs are unmistakable. The science is undeniable. And the cost of inaction keeps mounting". Future warmings will mean that people will die if went outside.
