The complexities of climate change and its associated jargon can be difficult to understand.

TheCable’s quick climate facts will help demystify these concepts through easy-to-understand and straightforward explanations.

Here are some to keep at the tip of your fingers:

  • May 2023 was the world’s third warmest on record in 174 years, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
  • The United Nations said the global shift to a low-carbon economy can deliver at least $26 trillion in economic benefits through 2030.  
  • Ninety percent of the world’s electricity can and should come from renewable energy by 2050, the organisation said.
  • From 1990 to 2019, research on Africa received just 3.8 percent of climate-related funding globally. This, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), has reduced adaptive capacity in the continent.
  • More than any other region, agricultural productivity growth has been reduced by 34 percent since 1961 due to climate change in Africa, the organisation said.
