Earth Could Become Unliveable if Greenhouse Emissions Continue Rising At Current Rates: Report


NEW YORK (AFP) —landmark United Nations (UN) report on climate change highlighting the importance of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius was released in South Korea on Monday after a week-long meeting of the 195-nation Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

More than 90 scientists wrote the report, which is based on more than 6,000 peer reviews.

“Summary for Policymakers” of the 400-page tome underscores how quickly global warming has outstripped humanity’s attempts to tame it, and outlines stark options — all requiring a makeover of the world economy — for avoiding the worst ravages of climate change.

“Things that scientists have been saying would happen further in the future are happening now,” Jennifer Morgan, executive director of Greenpeace International, told AFP.
