Something to watch: IPCC Press Conference…

Meanwhile, the BBC has a good spread about the report here:

The authors believe that 1.5C will be reached by 2040 in all scenarios. If emissions aren’t slashed in the next few years, this will happen even earlier.

In case you missed it, we talked about the IPCC’s earlier (2018) report, here:

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published a report in 2018, pulling in evidence from 107 experts from 52 countries in order to provide governments around the world with the data behind human-induced climate breakdown.

It will be interesting to see how governments around the world react to this, at both a local, national and international level. There will be warm words, but also an overwhelming amount of cognitive dissonance as politicians try to square re-opening roads to motor traffic; opening new oilfields and levelling areas of forestry with any sort of ambition to avert catastrophe.
