The global average air temperature may rise by more than 1.5 degree Celsius mark over pre-industrial levels between 2021 and 2040, according to the Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released on August 9

EDINBURGH, Scotland (CMC):

Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley on Monday urged the international community to agree to a 1.5 degree Celsius mark regarding the environment, warning that anything higher than that would constitute a “death sentence” for countries in the Caribbean and other small islands developing states (SIDS).

“Two degrees is a death sentence for the people of Antigua and Barbuda, for the people of the Maldives, for the people of Dominica and Fiji, for the people of Kenya and Mozambique, and yes, for the people of Samoa and Barbados.

“We do not want that dreaded death sentence, and we are here to say, ‘Try harder!’,” Mottley told the opening ceremony of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), taking place here until November 12.
