Climate summit – window for avoiding catastrophe is closing fast

It has been an alarming time for climate scientists. One by one, the grim
scenarios they had outlined for the near future have been overtaken by
events: extreme storms, droughts, floods and ice-sheet collapses whose
sudden appearances have outstripped researchers’ worst predictions.


Catastrophic climate change is happening more rapidly and with greater
intensity than their grimmest warnings, it transpires. Examples include
this summer’s record high temperature of 40.3C in the UK, a massive jump of
1.6C on the previous hottest day; torrential rains that triggered the most
severe flooding in Pakistan’s recent history; and last year’s Hurricane
Ida, one of the most destructive storms to have struck the US.

It is not that global temperatures have risen faster than expected. The problem is
that the effect of this rise has been unexpectedly extreme.
