UN’s climate science body IPCC clarifies that the world is short of time on climate action
Intense heatwaves with temperatures over 45°C have seared India this summer. The worst-hit has been the working poor confined to tasks that can only be done outside. We are all now too familiar with weird weather events happening due to climate change across different geographies at different times. In its latest report, the UN’s apex climate science body, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), clarifies that the world is short of time on climate action. According to the report, fresh global emissions have to start declining by 2025 and be brought close to zero by 2050 to keep global heating below 1.5°C above the baseline levels of 1850. We need to encourage much greater innovation for a lighter carbon footprint.
