U.N climate change report sounds “code red for humanity”


Aug 9, 2021 (Reuters)

A U.N. climate panel said that Global warming is dangerously close to spiralling out of control. Warning us that the world is already certain to face further climate disruptions for decades.

They stated that “Humans are unequically to blame”, the report came from scientist of the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC). They reported that rapid actions to cut greenhouse gas emissions could limit some impacts, but others are now locked in.

Essentially, the deadly heat waves, gargantuan hurricanes and other weather extremes that are already happening will only become more severe.

In three months time, the U.N. COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, will try to wring much more ambitious climate action out of the nations of the world. Using more than 14,000 scientific studies, the IPCC report gives the most comprehensive and detailed picture yet of how climate change is changing the world.

Unless immediate reparations happen, the rapid and large-scale action needs to be taken to reduce emissions, the report states, the average global temperature is likely to reach or cross the 1.5 degree Celsius warming threshold within 20 years.

Thus far, the pledges made to cut emissions have been nowhere near enough to reduce the level of greenhouse gases.

This should be a wake up call to all leaders, businesses and people that CHANGE needs to take place.
