Don’t Despair Over Climate Report’s Horrors, There Are Fixes — But Electric Cars Not One Of Them – forbes
[UPDATED August 9, 2021] The Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (IPCC) has released its much-anticipated peer-reviewed tub-thumper of a report, and it is bursting with existential horrors. Our planet is expected to hit the critical threshold of 1.5°C warming due to human-caused climate change within the next 20 years, whether or not greenhouse gas emissions are reduced.
Humanity’s role in driving climate change was “unequivocal,” said the report agreed by experts from 195 countries, who were not paid for their work.
“Climate change is not a problem of the future, it’s here and now, and affecting every region of the world,” stated Friederike Otto of the University of Oxford, one of the IPCC experts.
