According to the UN report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, prepared by 234 scientists from 66 countries, climate change is widespread, relatively fast and intensifying, and some trends are already irreversible. Human influence on the climate has contributed to global warming at an unprecedented rate in the last 2000 years, the same study shows. Scientists have identified changes in the climate system around the globe: in the atmosphere, in the oceans, in glaciers and on the ground. According to experts, humanity still has time to reduce the impact of climate change. For example, just reducing gas emissions could quickly improve air quality, and in 20-30 years the global temperature could stabilize.
Another 200 trees are to be planted in November, on a territory in the immediate vicinity of Comrat where a leisure and relaxation space is expected to be established for the inhabitants of the city.
