Act now for a liveable future, scientists plead as IPCC climate report shows time running out to tackle global warming. Independent.ie Press release

With that will come “rapidly escalating hazards” with more frequent and intense extreme weather events, increased harm to human health and nature, and worsening food and water shortages. These dangers lie ahead despite the availability of “multiple, feasible and effective options” to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Those are the conclusions of scientists in the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report released today.
