Climate Change Affecting Billions of Lives; Impacts Irreversible, Latest IPCC Report Says

The latest report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change (IPCC) reveals that despite efforts to reduce the risks,
human-inducedclimte changeis causing dangerous and widespread disruption
in nature and affecting the lives of billions of people around the
world. People and ecosystems least able to cope are being hardest hit,
said scientists in the IPCC report.

Hoesung Lee, Chair of the IPCC said that the new report is a dire
warning about the consequences of inaction. The world is faced with
unavoidable multiple climate hazards over the next two decades with
global warming of 1.5°C (2.7°F). Even temporarily exceeding this warming
level will result in additional severe impacts, some of which will be
irreversible. The risks for society will increase, including those to
infrastructure and low-lying coastal settlements.

Increased heatwaves, droughts, and floods are already exceeding plants'
and animals' tolerance thresholds, driving mass mortalities in species
such as trees and corals. These extreme weather conditions are occurring
simultaneously, causing cascading impacts that are increasingly
difficult to manage, exposing millions of people to acute food and water
insecurity, especially in Africa, Asia, Central and South America, on
Small Islands, and in the Arctic.

The report underlines the urgency for climate action, focusing on equity
and justice. ??The scientific evidence is unequivocal: climate change is
a threat to human wellbeing and the health of the planet. Any further
delay in concerted global action will miss a brief and rapidly closing
window to secure a liveable future,? said IPCC Working Group II Co-Chair
Hans-Otto P??rtner.
