Climate change of our planet is a significant problem for the functioning of humanity. The fact of climate warming is undisputed and confirmed by research carried out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Global warming is a steady increase in the average air temperature on Earth. Since 1890, the average temperature has risen dangerously approaching the critical value of 2 degrees Celsius (according to IPCC, the safety threshold for increasing the global average temperature is 1.5 degrees). The consequences of this process are serious and are felt by everyone around the world.
Rising sea levels, lack of access to drinking water or a direct threat to human life as a result of extreme weather events are just some of them. The IPPC position is also confirmed by the Polish Academy of Sciences. On December 10, 2018, they stated that human activity is the dominant cause of modern climate warming.
Emission to the atmosphere of the HFC agents commonly used in refrigeration and air conditioning, so-called F-gases, also contribute to the greenhouse effect. These substances have a high potential for global warming, the so-called GWP, which is several thousand times greater than the equivalent amount of carbon dioxide. They are the only greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol that are produced by human activities.
