The #IPCC Special Report "is like getting a troubling diagnosis from your doctor, said , a climate scientist at Texas Tech University. “Every possible test has been done and the news is not good.” #ClimateChange
Global warming is like being in a mine field that gets progressively more dangerous, says . “...1.5C is safer than 2C, 2C is safer than 2.5C, 2.5C is safer than 3C, and so on.” . #climate . #globalwarming
"The impacts and costs of 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit (1.5 degrees Celsius) of global warming will be far greater than expected, according to a comprehensive assessment by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)..."
The past decade has seen record-breaking storms, forest fires, droughts, coral bleaching, heat waves, and floods—and they'll be even worse in the next decade if emissions keep rising
Climate change impacts worse than expected, IPCC 1.5 report warns: National Geographic #environment | More w/ Eco-Search:
A decade to 1/2 emissions and 30 yrs to get to zero or negative to avoid 4° plus warming, they think. Currently 2° looks unavoidable. This is a good summary and there are some in depth articles online and some superb books on the subject with references.
.⁦⁩: Global warming is like being in a mine field that gets progressively more dangerous. “The further we go, the more explosions we are likely to set off.”
How much impact can 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit (1.5 degrees Celsius) make? According to an international report, stronger storms, more erratic weather, rising seas, and largescale disruption to infrastructure and migration patterns are expected consequences.
It's good to see an article on the IPCC report that encourages "a widespread dietary shift to eating less #meat" to lower emissions. via

“Stabilizing global warming at 1.5C will be extremely difficult if not impossible at this point,” says But don't give up, keep as low as possible: “1.5C is safer than 2C, 2C is safer than 2.5C, 2.5C is safer than 3C, and so on” #SR15

Stabilizing #globalwarming at 2.7 degrees F (1.5 C) requires cutting global fossil-fuel use in half in less than 15 years according to blockbuster #climate report . #SR15 #IPCC
Latest #climate report: 'cut fossil-fuel use in half in less than 15 years and eliminate their use almost entirely in 30 years' - barely doable with extreme urgency at all levels #climatechange #globalwarming #ipcc
My take on biggest #climate science report in years out today: #GlobalWarming already worse than expected, but there's a lot of things we can do to keep avoid the worst IF we act like it's an alien invasion force about to land

What #IPCC really said in its new blockbuster #climate report: MAYBE after 10 years of all-hands-on-deck effort by every country starting NOW we'll have shot at staying between 1.5C and 2.0C #globalwarming #SR15 #climatechange #energy
Here's what the conservative #IPCC said: Cut fossil fuel use in half in 10-15 years; add more forests; figure out a way to suck CO2 out of the atmosphere and MAYBE stay under 2C #climate #GlobalWarming

To stay below 1.5°C simply requires the transformation be faster & deeper than for 2°C. Emissions continue to grow, & without the full involvement & alignment of technical, social, & political dimensions, 1.5°C & even 2°C won’t be possible. #SR15
Why isn't the new #climate report the lead on every TV news broadcast? Isn't an authoritative update that shows the existential threat to humanity is coming faster and harder than expected newsworthy??? #globalwarming #ipcc
