ABSTRACT
The article argues that global warming is now unlikely to avoid. According to climate scientists, a rise of two degrees centigrade in global temperatures, which is the point for climate change that will lead to drought and flooding, is now unlikely to be prevented. A study from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of the United Nations indicated that the impacts of global warming on sections of the world are unavoidable.
