6日起,東北多個城市連續遭遇空氣重度污染,預計10日至14日,東三省的大氣擴散條件總體不利,依然將是中到重度污染。環保部監測司司長表示,已要求相關省全力應對,采取減排限行措施,最大可能減輕空氣重污染的危害和影響。霧霾漫天的長春、沈陽、吉林等各地便靠這樣“別樣”的方式登上了各大外媒的頭條……污染嚴重,全球氣候變暖,大家有想過這樣的狀況長久下去,百年以后世界各地都會呈現怎樣的景象呢?

From melting ice-caps to rising sea levels, we‘ve all heard about the dangers that global warming could pose, but what would that actually look like?

從冰冠融化到海平面上升,全球氣候變暖會帶來的危險我們都有所聽聞,但究竟是有多危險?

A team from Climate Central has set out to show people by putting together a series of digitally altered images show some of the most famous coastal cities around the world, and what the could end up looking like by 2100 if nothing is done.

氣象中心小組已開始把一系列世界知名沿海城市的照片拼在一起,這些照片經數碼改變,向人們展示若無所作為,到2100年世界會是怎樣一幅面貌。

New York: Each image comparison shows what could happen if humans dramatically cut their carbon emissions (upper) limiting global temperature rises to just 2C (3F) by 2100, or what will happen if current use continues, meaning temperatures rise by 4C (7F).

紐約:每張圖片比較都顯示了如果人們大力減少碳排放(上圖)、全球溫度上升控制在2攝氏度(3華氏度)及若維持現今的碳使用量,全球溫度將上漲4攝氏度(7華氏度)。

London: However, by making ‘rapid and aggressive carbon cuts’ over the coming years, we could stave off the worst effects of this change educing the damage inflicted on many iconic global cities and landmarks.

倫敦:然而,接下來幾年“快速有力地減少碳排放”,我們勉強可以延緩氣候變暖對全球標志性城市和地標的惡劣影響。

Rio De Janeiro: Scientists predict that the sea level rises will come about thanks to the melting of polar ice, not only adding water to the oceans, but tipping entire continents.

里約熱內盧:科學家預言,由于極地冰融化,海平面會上漲,不但大洋水增加,甚至會傾翻所有大洲。

Sydney: If current carbon emissions continue, according to research by campaign group Climate Central, then sea levels could rise by up to 38ft, however, with ‘rapid and dramatic cuts’ that damage could be reduced significantly.

悉尼:若碳排放繼續,據氣象中心活動組織的研究稱,那時海平面將上升多達36英尺,然而,如果碳排放“大刀闊斧銳減”,危害也將驟減。

Mumbai: While the current effects of climate change are largely felt by small settlements and developing countries, by 2100 cities on six continents could be affected by altered weather patterns.

孟買:盡管現今氣候變化主要影響小型居民點和發展中國家,到2100年,六大洲的城市均或將受業已變化的天氣模式的影響。

Durban: The homes of up to 800million people could be affected if carbon emissions continue at their current rates, though this number could be drastically reduced if usage of carbon-heavy fuels were changed.

德班:如果碳排放量以現在的速率持續上漲,這一八億人口的家園會受到影響,盡管若改變重碳消耗燃料的使用,受影響的人數會大幅減少。
