ISLAMABAD: Global warming will cause irreversible damage to marine life in the world’s oceans if left unchecked, a new study says.
The results of the study, confirm that global warming is both forcing fish to search for cooler waters and destroying valuable undersea habitats, including coral reefs.
According to the research, human beings as the biggest contributors to climate change have two scenarios to avoid further consequences of global warming for sea creatures, Press TV reported.
In one scenario, atmospheric warming can be limited to two degrees by 2100, as outlined by the Copenhagen Accord. In the other, the current approach can be kept, which researchers say will cause a five-degree increase in atmospheric temperatures.
The Copenhagen Accord is a political agreement struck by world leaders at the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. It calls on participating countries to pledge specific actions they will undertake to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, which have a negative impact on the climate.
