A new scientific study carried out by an international research team under the supervision of "University of Cambridge" warns that the end of our world is likely to be due to climate change, and called on environmental experts in the world to study this catastrophic scenario in depth.

These scientists did not provide a detail of how our world will end due to climate changes, but they suggested that this environmental phenomenon - whose negative effects are becoming more and more severe day by day - may be a cause of mass extinction.

Climate change is not the only reason for this annihilation, as scientists have touched on other causes such as nuclear wars, epidemics, infectious diseases, and even economic crises that will contribute in one way or another to this, as happened in previous periods of history.

Climate change and the fall of empires

The study dealt with the contribution of climate changes and the role of their effects such as drought and economic crises in the fall of many kingdoms and empires in periods of our planet's history, and it is likely that our world will face the same fate.

The study's first supervisor, Dr Luke Camp from the University of Cambridge, said there are many reasons why the study's authors believe that climate change could end our world even if the expected temperatures are not very high.

Camp adds - according to what was stated in a press release summarizing the contents of the study issued by the University of Cambridge - that climatic changes played a pivotal role in all the critical stages that our planet knew, especially the periods of extinction that it knew or the fall of the Mamluks and empires.

The same speaker believes that "we live today in a world full of dangers facing us, economic crises, infectious diseases, new epidemics, and perhaps nuclear wars that will have a serious impact on us with climate change."

Experts believe that the world has recently experienced a scenario similar to what could happen in the future, which is the emergence of the deadly Corona Virus (Covid-19) epidemic, with a rise in temperatures and the occurrence of floods in some parts of the world, which made the situation more complicated.

Commenting on this study, Dr. Wissam Muhammad, professor of environmental sciences at the University of Dammam in Saudi Arabia, said - in a statement to Al Jazeera Net via e-mail - "In 2005, environmentalist Jared Diamond published his book "Collapse", in which he considered that one of the reasons for the collapse of Societies' inability to address the problem of climate change, recalling examples from history of ancient societies that have decayed due to environmental problems.

He added that "Luke Camp and his team's study is trying to draw - quantitatively in numbers and areas - the situation in light of the continuation of global climate changes after 5 decades from now. They expect armed conflicts, economic collapse and possibly a mass extinction of humans, and by 2070 about two billion people will live in severe areas The heat, and our Arab region will be at the center of these changes.”

Create a new specialization for the Climate End scenario

In its press release, the University of Cambridge calls on all environmental experts to launch a new and deep scientific research program called “Climate Endgame” at the level of all universities in the world to study what can be done to counter the catastrophic effects of climate change on our planet.

They considered the "four components" of the existential risks of a potential climate catastrophe to be famine and malnutrition, climate change, conflict and war, and rapidly spreading disease.

The scientists suggested that the effects of climate change should be studied according to several scenarios, including a reduction in human numbers starting from 10% and may reach extinction and extinction, which is the worst scenario that could happen if the necessary steps are not taken to stop the deterioration of the environment.

According to the study published in the journal "PNAS", these scientists called on all environmental experts in the world, especially the "intergovernmental panel on climate change" (IPCC) to move and prepare to prepare environmental reports on the disaster that may befall with humanity;

Take into account all scenarios.

The study’s authors explain that all the scientific research and studies completed focused on less pessimistic scenarios in terms of an average temperature rise, while a record rise exceeding the degrees that were under studies may occur, although it is currently excluded, “but the logic calls for attention to all of that.” And preparing scenarios in anticipation of any unforeseen emergency.

Dr. Wissam Mohamed said that "the solutions available today range from adaptation as well as mitigating the impact, and this means exploring new ways to constrain the causes of climate changes, and perhaps reverse them to restore the original status of the land, and in this we find, for example, environmental architecture, which is a branch of architecture that aims to be Building in an environmentally friendly way, there are also pioneering solutions such as green roofs and walls.”

He added, "These new technologies are very important because they allow to reduce the temperature inside the buildings and increase the percentage of oxygen, and purify the air of pollutants, and this is very necessary for a healthy life."
