5 key takeaways from the IPCC’s climate report

Fix the Planet unpacks the IPCC’s report’s five key takeaways on how
we should try to adapt.

1) We are not doing nearly enough.

2) Even with today’s warming, we are rubbing up against limits to adaptation.

3) Some of our adaptation efforts are backfiring. “One of the most striking
examples of maladaptation is… examples of coastal infrastructure that is
attempting to protect from coastal erosion or sea level rise or cyclones or
other kinds of storms,” says Schipper. “[It] sometimes creates problems
further down the coast, it increases erosion for other people. Or sometimes
that infrastructure doesn’t take into account heavy rainfall and
doesn’t leave enough space for the water to drain properly. So it
essentially creates a new problem.”

4) No one is spending enough on
adaptation.

5) Nature is our ally.
