Quarter of earth to dry up if Paris goals not metIf the Earth’s temperature rises by 2 degrees Celsius in the next 30-some years, more than 25 percent of the earth will dry up, according to a new climate study.

Projections of 27 global climate models determined that 24 to 32 percent of the world’s total land surface would suffer from aridification with a 2 degree increase, according to a Nature Climate Change study published Monday.

But efforts to limit that temperature change to only 1.5 degrees would prevent the drying out of about two-thirds of the areas that are at risk, according to the report. Major population areas, including Southern Europe, Southern Africa, Central America, coastal Australia and Southeast Asia, would be spared from significantly drying out.
