World careering towards irreversible climate impacts, top scientists warn

Landmark IPCC report provides wave of stark warning, but stresses that
rapidly putting the global economy on course to net zero emissions by 2050
could hugely reduce the escalating impacts that will result from a warmer
world.

Climate change is accelerating and intensifying across every region
of the planet, bringing with it increases in rainfall, flooding, drought,
heatwaves, and sea levels that are already having significant implications
for economies around the world.

That is the stark consensus of the world’s leading climate scientists in a landmark UN report today, which offers the
clearest picture yet of both the scale of global warming already being
experienced and the likely impacts of further temperature rises that are
set to play out over the coming decades.

The report concludes that the
world’s average surface land temperature currently stands at around 1.1C
above pre-industrial levels, and is likely to be reach 1.5C – the optimal
target set out in the Paris Agreement – within the next 20 years regardless
of potential actions taken to slash greenhouse gas emissions in the
meantime.
