UN report warns that global warming solutions may soon run out
We have a lot of alternatives right now to cut greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to human-caused climate change, but time is running out, according to a significant group of climate scientists.
Antonio Guterres, secretary-general of the United Nations, said, "Humanity is on thin ice, and that ice is melting fast." "Our world requires climate action on all fronts — everything, everywhere, at once."
During a press conference to announce the publication of its Climate Change 2023: Synthesis Report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stated that to save the Earth, carbon pollution and fossil fuel use must be drastically reduced by roughly two-thirds by 2035.
Additionally, Guterres urged affluent nations to stop using oil, coal, and gas by 2040 and end new fossil fuel exploration.
The IPCC chair, Hoesung Lee, stated in a press statement that "mainstreaming effective and equitable climate action would not only deliver wider benefits, but it will also cut losses and harms for nature and people."
"We still have time to ensure a sustainable future for everyone if we take action now," he said.
It will become harder and harder to deal with global warming
There aren't any brand-new scientific discoveries in the Climate Change 2023: Synthesis Report.
The reason it's termed a synthesis report is as it integrates data from three preceding reports that were primarily concerned with the science of the climate issue.
It included measurements and projections, the effects of climate change and how to adapt to them, and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
