IPCC ‘s dire warning on climate change is being ignored, amid war and economic turmoil

Scientists fear that their last-ditch climate warnings are going unheeded
amid international turmoil caused by the war in Ukraine, and soaring energy
prices. The third segment of the landmark scientific report from the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – which could be the last
comprehensive assessment of climate science to be published while there is
still time to avoid the worst ravages of climate breakdown – will be
published on Monday, warning that the world is not shifting quickly enough
to a low-carbon economy.

But the previous instalment of the vast report –
known as working group 2 of the IPCC – was published a month ago, just as
Russia invaded Ukraine, and received only muted attention, despite warning
of catastrophic and irreversible upheavals that can only narrowly be
avoided by urgent action now. Scientists told the Observer that Monday’s
fresh scientific warning must spur governments to belated action.
