Headline News About the IPCC Report

Climate Change 2022: Mitigation of Climate Change

"The latest IPCC report argues that stabilizing the climate will require fast action
Emissions must peak by 2025 for the world to have a chance of meeting the Paris goals."

"the third instalment of the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) ... makes clear that there are options in all sectors to halve emissions by 2030 but that this depends on major shifts in a number of key sectors including the energy and industry sectors. The report also makes it clear that the next few years are critical and that clear signaling from governments and the international community, including a stronger alignment of public sector finance and policy, will be required to effectively mitigate and adapt to climate change impacts - which is critical to sustainable development."
“IPCC: We can tackle climate change if big oil gets out of the way:   Experts say criticism of oil and gas’s ‘climate-blocking activities’ cut from final draft, is reflective of industry’s power and influence”

"Cutting greenhouse gas emissions to prevent the worst of climate change would be relatively cheap and technologically feasible, but governments and financial bodies are failing to do so as they continue to prop up the fossil fuel industry. That’s the conclusion of a landmark report  published Monday by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
The report focuses on solutions that could limit average global warming to 1.5°C since the preindustrial era—a threshold after which the impacts of climate change become catastrophic and irreversible. This is the first mitigation-focused report put out by the IPCC since the Paris Agreement was signed. It is part of a package of three reports—the other two focused on the state of climate science and adaptation—published every seven years by the IPCC."

“Six key findings from the IPCC’s report on climate change mitigation:
1. Global GHG emissions have continued to rise, but in pathways that limit warming to 1.5 degrees C, they peak before 2025.
2. There's no room for building new fossil fuel infrastructure.
3. We need rapid transformations across all systems to avoid the worst climate impacts.
4. Changes in lifestyle and behaviors have a significant role to play in mitigating climate change.
5. Limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees C will be impossible without carbon removal.
6. Climate finance for mitigation must be 3 to 6 times higher by 2030 to limit warming to below 2 degrees C. reduction"
