The first Climate Change scientific report published by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change since 2013 has just been released today. The report has warned that further warming in coming years will bring new weather extremes in magnitude, frequencies, and timing and in regions that have never occurred before.
The assessment reports come in groups of three. This first one outlines the projected impacts of five emissions scenarios, which range from global net negative and net zero to emissions doubling by 2050 and 2100, compared to current levels. The second and third reports, due to land in early 2022, will look at how to adapt to these impacts and how to prevent the worst case scenarios.
- The globe is set to pass 1.5C warming by 2040
- Its clearly evident that human activity is driving extreme weather
- Climate sensitivity enables scientists to know more about regional climate impacts
Water is impacted in all of the key messages described in the report.
The report also brings together a new range of evidential research and scientific facts about climate change and promotes climate literacy across all nations.
