In order to limit the increase of global warming to 1,5°C rapid, forward-looking and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society are required.
This was stated in Incheon, South Korea by the IPCC - Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the UN Intergovernmental group of experts on climate Change) in a new report on global warming last October. Global net CO2 emissions from human activity should decrease at least by around 45% compared to 2010 levels by 2030. One of the key messages emerging from this report is that we are already seeing the consequences of rising global warming by 1°C (above pre-industrial levels). These include increased extreme weather events, rising sea levels, and decreasing sea ice in the Arctic sea. The good news is that some of the actions that are needed are already under way in some regions, but they also need to be accelerated.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
