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:

  • Energy, industry, agriculture and waste disposal are among the major emitters of greenhouse gas, according to the United Nations.
  • The burning of fossil fuels such as gasoline for driving a car or coal for heating a building, including clearing land and forests releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
  • The UN says the earth is about 1.1° Celsius warmer than it was in the 1800s.
  • The current path of carbon dioxide emissions could increase global temperature by as much as 4.4° Celsius by the end of the century, the organisation said.
  • Fossil fuel production must decline by roughly six percent per year between 2020 and 2030 to keep warming below 1.5° Celsius, according to the UN.
