We have 12 years to stop the rise in temperature!


The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, has published a report stating that humanity requires immediate changes in order to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, which include limiting the increase in average global temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The report was adopted on October 8 by all 195 signatory countries to the Paris Climate Agreement at a meeting in the city of Incheon, South Korea, after three years of research and the review of 6,000 papers.

The world is currently 1°C warmer than pre-industrial levels, and as stated in the IPCC report, climate change is already occurring, as evidenced by devastating hurricanes in the United States, record droughts in Cape Town, and forest fires in the Arctic. Building on previous reports’ warnings about the risks of climate change, the IPCC warns that any additional warming could worsen the impact of global warming.
