Summary of the IPCC report

The IPCC Report and the County’s responsibility to take action

Global Warming of 1.5C, an IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty.

Last week, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a special report assessing and summarizing the currently-available literature on global warming. The IPCC is a group of the world’s top scientists commissioned by the United Nations with the goal of distilling the current science on climate change. The panel’s goal is to provide objective and accurate reports on climate change and its political and economic impacts.

To put it plainly, the report lays out how the effects of surpassing a 2℃ warming would be catastrophic. Poor people and communities in the Global South are experiencing the worst effects of climate change-- including diseases, displacement, and famine-- and will continue to be impacted as we further warm our climate. Allowing temperatures to reach 1.5℃ above pre-industrial levels presents similar challenges that are unprecedented for our global society, but limiting warming to this level would reduce the number people drastically affected by the changed climate.
