The world is very likely to miss the most important climate target of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, which would cause irrevocable damage to the planet’s ecosystem and severely impact humans and other living beings, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a UN-backed body of the world’s leading climate scientists has warned.
Releasing the report on Monday, scientists said keeping global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels requires deep, rapid and sustained greenhouse gas emissions reductions in all sectors.
Reacting to the report, United Nations Chief Antonio Guterres said: Humanity is on thin ice – and that ice is melting fast… The climate time-bomb is ticking. The 1.5-degree limit is achievable. But it will take a quantum leap in climate action.
Guterres urged rich countries to reach net zero by 2040 and developing countries to aim for 2050.
The IPCC Synthesis Report is a summary of all the reports produced since 2015 on the reasons and consequences of global temperature rise due to anthropogenic emissions.
On this broadcast, we’ll analyse the key takeaways of the IPCC report and try to understand from experts what the world needs to do to ensure rapid, deep and immediate greenhouse gas emissions reductions to prevent the overshoot.
