This year’s climate change report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns that the impacts from climate change are already occurring.
With over 300 authors from 70 countries, this report is a worldwide scientific collaboration. They state that world leaders have a limited time to reduce carbon emissions to avoid disastrous warming.
Major impacts from climate change include sea level rise, large-scale shifts in temperatures that would disrupt human life and natural ecosystems, increased diseases, and decreased or disrupted food production or food quality.
The authors argue that today’s governments are not prepared for the consequences of climate change, and stress how today’s actions determine our future.
