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.Climate change: IPCC report is ‘code red for humanity’ – BBC News
In case you missed it, we talked about the IPCC’s earlier (2018) report, here:

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.
