Climate change is widespread and intensifying, says the latest IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report. Human-induced climate change is affecting many weather and climate extremes across the world. UN Secretary-General António Guterres describes the report as “a code red for humanity.”
However, there is still time to limit climate change, say experts from IPCC. A dramatic drop in the emission of greenhouse gases could quickly make air quality better, and in 20 to 30 years, global temperatures could stabilise. However, new sustainable technologies and business models are necessary for the transition to a carbon-neutral economy.
