Unequivocal, widespread and rapid: IPCC's sobering outlook for the planet

The latest IPCC report paints a clear picture of unprecedented global destruction due to climate change. How can we limit the climate breakdown?

By Daniel Cope

The release of The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) sixth Assessment Report paints an unequivocal picture; the climate emergency will continue (at an alarming rate) to cause an unprecedented level of destruction globally.

In fact, it is likely that we will have surpassed the 1.5 degree Celsius target in as little as 10 years.

It is bittersweet that the conversation has now progressed from ‘are humans responsible for the climate breakdown?’ to ‘how much time do we have before it is too late?’.

As expected, the report does not offer any good news, but it does offer hope; should significant and constant efforts be made to achieve net-zero, we can mitigate the damage to the planet.

As such, the second question to ask is no longer ‘can we avoid the climate breakdown?’, but ‘how can we limit the climate breakdown?’
