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:

  • The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says warming over land is larger and more than twice as high in the Arctic.
  • The ocean helps mitigate the impacts of climate change and absorbs around 23 percent of annual carbon dioxide emissions generated by human activities, according to the United Nations.
  • The UN said the ocean has also absorbed more than 90 percent of the excess heat in the climate system.
  • According to the IPCC, while benefits for air quality would come quickly, it could take 20 to 30 years to see global temperatures stabilise.
  • Extreme sea level events that previously occurred once in 100 years could happen every year by the end of this century, the organisation said.
