Geographers from the Polish Academy of Sciences calling for support for research on climate change


The Committee on Geographical Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN) appealed to state authorities to support scientific research, and to scientists to educate the public thoroughly about climate change.

The PAN Committee expressed its belief in the urgent need for climate protection. It reminded that the years 2014-2020 were the warmest in the history of meteorological and oceanographic measurements, both globally and in Poland.

In the opinion of scientists from the Polish Academy of Sciences, too rapid progress of climate change brings negative effects for the human environment, such as: increase of the world ocean level, disappearance of ice cover and long-term permafrost in polar, subpolar and high mountain areas, intensification of heat waves around the globe and increase in frequency both drought and extreme precipitation in many regions of the world.
