  • Global Report Warns There is Less Than 12 Years to Act on Climate Change

"The worldwide 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".

Organisations and investors that back green energy said the report makes it clear that the world should accelerate the shift away from coal, the most polluting fossil fuel.

The Government and its climate advisers have been waiting for the findings of the report. The report is going to be discussed at a conference in Poland during the end of the year. "The risk to those investments is that markets and governments will move aggressively to decarbonize the economy, in which case the value of those assets could drop significantly".

"Limiting global warming to 1.5°C compared with 2°C would reduce challenging impacts on ecosystems, human health and well-being, making it easier to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals", said Priyardarshi Shukla, co-chair of another IPCC working group.

Limiting global warming's temperature rise to 1.5ºC would require "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society", the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said in a damning new report.

CW's Batwoman Reveals First Look At Ruby Rose In Costume
If the series is picked up it will make her the first openly gay superhero to star in a live-action television series or movie. The Colleen Atwood-designed costume is comic book accurate with the Bat symbol, cape, and Kate Kane's long cherry-red hair.

Prof Jim Skea, from Imperial College London, one of the experts leading on the assessment, said the report was "unambiguous" on the difference in impacts between 1.5C and 2C of warming.

The world still has a chance to limit global warming to a maximum of 1.5° C above preindustrial levels, but major, immediate changes will be necessary, according to a report released today (October 8) by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Meeting the tougher-to-reach 1.5C goal "could result in around 420 million fewer people being frequently exposed to extreme heat waves, and about 65 million fewer people being exposed to exceptional heat waves", the report says.The deadly heat waves that hit India and Pakistan in 2015 could become practically yearly events if the world becomes hotter.

Like it or not, climate change and global warming are things that concern all of us.

That's not lost on Jones.

Trump silent on UN climate warning
Add Climate Change as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Climate Change news, video, and analysis from ABC News. Any additional emissions would require the removal of Carbon dioxide from the air.

The average temperature in New Delhi has risen by one degree Celsius in the last century and a half, while also during that time the heat rose in the also populous Indian cities of Mumbai (0.7 degrees), Chennai (0.6) and Calcutta (1.2).

Jones previous year established the Carbon Risk Initiative, a database that includes information on the amount of oil, gas, coal and utilities investments held by insurance companies, and whether the insurers have divested from thermal coal, the amount of thermal coal divested and any future commitments to divest.

Jones' has continued to harp that insurers must act soon, despite indications in past reports that the real effects of climate change are a ways off.

"These systems transitions are unprecedented in terms of scale, but not necessarily in terms of speed, and imply deep emissions reductions in all sectors", the IPCC said in the report.

"The coal industry has no role in a climate-stable world", said Jan Erik Saugestad, chief executive officer of Norway's Storebrand Asset Management, which oversees $88 billion.
