Global warm­ing re­port

The Sunday Independent - - METRO -

ON MON­DAY, the In­ter­gov­ern­men­tal Panel on Cli­mate Change re­leased its re­port on global warm­ing.

A state­ment from the UN sec­re­tary­gen­eral’s of­fice on the re­port said: “It con­firms that cli­mate change is run­ning faster than we are.

“The sci­en­tists paint the most vivid pic­ture we have ever had be­tween a tem­per­a­ture rise of 1.5ºC ver­sus

2ºC. A half of a de­gree of warm­ing makes a world of dif­fer­ence.”

Un­prece­dented changes in key sec­tors such as land, en­ergy, in­dus­try, build­ings, trans­port and cities, were re­quired, the re­port said.
