“Life on Earth can recover from a drastic climate shift by evolving into new species and creating new ecosystems … humans cannot.”
Just one of many stark warning from the draft Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report, which was leaked to the press earlier this month.
The authors of the report were quick to respond stating that the report is a work in progress. But, the central message remains – we need urgent action as we are heading towards tipping points in the climate system. This will be the 6th assessment report from the IPCC and it seems we can be sure it will contain their strongest warnings to date.
