World has stark warning

The latest report from the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was another massive effort. It is based on over 6,000 scientific studies and involved a team of 90 scientists and policy experts nominated from 40 countries. The process started in March 2017 and there were three report drafts and 42,000 reviewer comments. The final report was published on 8 October 2018 after a week-long meeting in South Korea. See the following links for the conclusions and implications.

In December, the world’s governments will review the implementation of the Paris Agreement to tackle climate change at a conference in Katowice, Poland.
