A panel of experts from the United Nations is going to release an important report on climate change today. The report will provide countries around the world with the latest facts on the current effects of global warming and future risks ahead of the United Nations Climate Summit in Glasgow in November.
The panel will also provide information on how different options for reducing greenhouse gas emissions will affect the pace of climate change in the coming decades. Nearly 200 countries in the world have signed the historic Paris climate agreement. Its aim is to keep global warming below 2 °C by the end of the century. Ideally it should not exceed 1.5 °C.
The goal can be achieved by changing the world economy
Previous reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found that these goals could be achieved if the world economy underwent drastic changes in the coming decades. But since the last report was published in 2013, scientists have been saying that the 1.5 °C target is probably now out of reach because more than 1 °C of warming has already occurred and further rise in temperature due to emissions already in the atmosphere. Locked in.
At the United Nations Climate Summit to be held in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November, governments will discuss what more countries can do to stop global warming. Along with this, the help of the people affected by it will also be discussed.
