    What The World Needs Right Now

    WRI: 10 Big Findings from the 2023 IPCC Report on Climate Change

    Sophie Boehm and Clea Schumer, March 20, 2023 (World Resources Institute)

    “…[T]he AR6 details the devastating consequences of rising greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions around the world…But the IPCC also offers hope…[The report’s 10 key findings begin with] 1. Human-induced global warming of 1.1 degrees C has spurred changes to the Earth’s climate that are unprecedented in recent human history…[and] 2. Climate impacts on people and ecosystems are more widespread and severe than expected, and future risks will escalate…[But] 3. Adaptation measures can effectively build resilience, but more finance is needed…[W]ith sufficient support, proven and readily available adaptation solutions can build resilience…[and] simultaneously deliver broader sustainable development benefits…

    ...4. Some climate impacts are already so severe they cannot be adapted to, leading to losses and damages…5. Global GHG emissions peak before 2025 in 1.5 degrees C-aligned pathways…6. The world must rapidly shift away from burning fossil fuels — the number one cause of the climate crisis…A mix of strategies can help avoid locking in these emissions, including retiring existing fossil fuel infrastructure, canceling new projects, retrofitting fossil-fueled power plants with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies and scaling up renewable energy sources like solar and wind (which are now cheaper than fossil fuels in many regions)…

    ...7. We also need urgent, systemwide transformations to secure a net-zero, climate-resilient future…8. Carbon removal is now essential…9. Climate finance for both mitigation and adaptation must increase dramatically this decade…10. Climate change — as well as our collective efforts to adapt to and mitigate it — will exacerbate inequity should we fail to ensure a just transition…[but] the IPCC identifies a range of measures that can support a just transition…Limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees C (2.7 degrees F) is still possible…A narrow window of opportunity is still open, but there’s not one second to waste.” click here for more
