The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) just met in South Korea and issued its hard-hitting report on the impact of global warming.
Quotes out of the Report:
- Warns that the world is heading toward a temperature rise of 3°C.
- [Preventing] rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society” we have to keep the global temperature rise to under 1.5°C.
- Changes to energy systems, changes to the way we manage land, [and] changes to the way we move around with transportation.
- Individuals also have to change their lifestyles…walking or cycling short distances rather than driving.
- It is about where we live and work.
- We can choose the way we move in cities.
- Cycling and walking is “non-motorised transport” and the viability rests on linkages with public transport, cultural factors, climate and geography.
- Transitional changes are already underway in many systems but limiting warming to 1.5°C would require a rapid escalation in the scale and pace of transition, particularly in the next 10-20 years.
- There is no historical precedent for the scale of the necessary transitions, in particular in a socially and economically sustainable way.
- Urges the phasing out of gasoline-powered cars but also talks up the prospects of electric vehicles – so long as their batteries are charged from renewable sources.
- Already seeing the consequences of 1°C of global warming through more extreme weather, rising sea levels and diminishing Arctic sea ice, among other changes
- Gives policymakers and practitioners the information they need to make decisions that tackle climate change while considering local context and people’s needs.
- The next few years are probably the most important in our history.
