    Five Ways To Subdue The Climate Crisis

    Climate change: IPCC scientists report five ways to save the planet

    Matt McGrath, April 4, 2022 (BBC News)

    “The dangers of climate change have been well reported for years. But what's had less attention is how the world could effectively tackle the issue…[The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), essentially …To avoid very dangerous warming, carbon emissions need to peak within three years, and fall rapidly after that…

    …[Five key ideas begin with the fact that keeping] the world under 1.5C requires emissions to peak by 2025…and shrink by 43% by the end of this decade…[by generating] energy from sustainable sources like wind and solar…[and ensure that] sustainable energy is the only road to Putin-free power…[Second,] as the climate crisis has escalated and cutting carbon emissions has proven difficult, researchers have been forced to look again at…the idea of carbon dioxide removal (CDR)…[K]eeping temperatures down won't really be possible without some form of removal, be it via trees or air filtering machines…[Third, reducing people's demand for energy in the areas of shelter, mobility and nutrition through low carbon diets, food waste, how we build our cities, and how we shift people to more carbon friendly transport options] could limit emissions from end-use sectors by 40-70% by 2050…

    …[Fourth,] the financial toll of climate disasters has steadily climbed… Keeping temperatures well under 2C costs a bit more, but not much, given the avoided damages, and wide range of co-benefits such as cleaner air and water…[Finally, there] is renewed emphasis in this report on the outsized impact that richer people are having on the planet…the 10% of households with the highest per capita emissions contribute up to 45% of consumption-based household greenhouse gas emissions…” click here for more
