PM not swayed by major climate report

In 2005, the state released a report on the potential impacts of climate change, examining effects on everything from tourism and forests to water and agriculture.

Science has spoken in detail about climate change.

Answer: The IPCC Working Groups were asked by countries that are most vulnerable to climate change impacts to analyze what will happen with a 1.5 degree Celsius rise in global temperatures - before we ever reach a 2 degree rise.

Henri Waisman, a senior researcher at Paris-based think tank IDDRI and one of 91 report authors, said the report's aim was to set out the types of transformation required as clearly as possible to inform discussions at United Nations climate talks and beyond.

Decades ago, Congress refused to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, which represented the first step toward meaningful global action on climate in 1992. "There is no time to waste". "At the same time, numerous actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions would benefit human health now".

The report finds that limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require "rapid and far-reaching" transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport, and cities.

"The coming period is critical". A rise in temperatures can lead to far more deaths in the summer heat. There are many well recognised uncertainties in understanding climate change - for instance, even if we set a course aiming to hit 1.5℃ (which is mostly determined by future CO₂ emissions), we could end up hitting, say, 1℃ or 2℃ instead. "Small island states, (the) Mediterranean region and also sub-Saharan Africa is already suffering and will suffer more in the future".

The burning of fossil fuels on an industrial scale has raised global temperatures by about 1 degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit).

According to the most recent federal climate assessment for the region, as winter temperatures continue increasing, less snow will fall, "potentially disrupting western US water management practices".

Mangroves are being planted in the coastal district of An Bien in the Mekong Delta Province Kien Giang to fight off erosion and salt intrusion - negative phenomena exacerbated by climate change.

Adverse impacts on the ecosystems and human societies are estimated to be much greater than anticipated earlier and the rate of decarbonisation of the world economy has been strongly suggested to be faster than what was recommended before.

"There is no definitive way to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 above pre-industrial levels", the United Nations -requested report said. "A reduction of 0.1 metres in global sea level rise implies that up to 10 million fewer people would be exposed to related risks". Moreover, coral reefs, already threatened, would decline by 70-90 percent with global warming of 1.5°C, whereas virtually all would be lost with 2°C, according to the report.

Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma have long attacked the IPCC. On the other hand, climate change negotiations are hard without some target to work towards.

Canada would have to cut its emissions nearly in half over the next 12 years to meet the stiffer targets dozens of worldwide climate change experts say is required to prevent catastrophic results from global warming. Allowing the global temperature to temporarily exceed or "overshoot" 1.5ºC would mean a greater reliance on techniques that remove Carbon dioxide from the air to return global temperatures to below 1.5°C by 2100.

According to Durwood Zaelke, founder of the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development, speaking to The Guardian in the wake of the latest IPCC report, it "fails to focus on the weakest link in the climate chain: the self-reinforcing feedbacks which, if allowed to continue, will accelerate warming and risk cascading climate tipping points and runaway warming".

Nine years later, Trump has withdrawn the USA from the IPCC and the White House says it is already doing everything it plans to do. The dialogue will be a part of the next UNFCCC conference of States parties, known by the shorthand COP 24, which will meet in Katowice, Poland, this December.

Failure could have multiple interrelated consequences, he said.

"The global community must emerge with critically important implementation guidelines for operationalizing the Paris Agreement", he said, adding that all countries now needed to "heed the counsel of the world's top scientists: raise ambition, rapidly strengthen their national climate action plans, and urgently accelerate implementation of the Paris Agreement".
