IPPC Issues Final Call to Avoid Catastrophe!

Rapid & Far-Reaching
Keeping to the preferred target of 1.5C above pre-industrial levels will still mean "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society". It will be a hugely expensive exercise, but the window of opportunity remains open, just!
Following three years of research and a week of discussion between scientists and government officials in South Korea, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued this special report on the impact of global warming.
