UN IPCC REPORTS
The IPCC said in 2018 that we have 12 years to fundamentally change the structure of our society in order to avoid the most cataclysmic effects of global warming
The IPCC was set up by the Governments of the World to advise them on the Climate and ecological emergency.
The UN climate scientists are very conservative in their estimates and predictions. Most scientists think in reality we have to act much sooner
The IPCC prepares comprehensive Assessment Reports about the state of scientific, technical and socio-economic knowledge on climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for reducing the rate at which climate change is taking place. It also produces Special Reports on topics agreed to by its member governments, as well as Methodology Reports that provide guidelines for the preparation of greenhouse gas inventories.
2018 SPECIAL REPORT
The IPCC's '1.5 Degree Report' paints a dire picture that suggests we must fundamentally change the nature of society in the next decade.
World leaders have 12 years to fundamentally change the structure of our society in order to avoid the most cataclysmic effects of global warming, according to the world’s most important consortium of climate scientists.
Carbon dioxide emissions must reach net zero by 2050 in order to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius according to the “1.5 Degree Report,” compiled by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a coalition of climate scientists working for the United Nations. For perspective, we emitted over 32 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide last year (a gigatonne is one billion metric tonnes.) The report also claims that national pledges from the 2015 Paris Climate Accord are not enough to meet these targets.
