Global warming report
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.
