How years compare with the 20th Century average
That's one of the most pointed findings in a special report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which was tasked with studying how a 2.0° Celsius rise in global temperature will affect the planet, its ecosystems and human communities, compared with a 1.5°C temperature increase. Leaders from countries such as Botswana and Namibia can not let-up on the global stage in pushing for nation states to make good on, and further improve, their pledges to cut greenhouse gas emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.
Caitlin Wiesen, UNDP Country Director for Vietnam, said the IPCC report noted that severe impacts of climate change could be avoidable by limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, but time is running out.
Trump said he wanted to know more about who wrote the report. In section 1.3.2. of this chapter, Drivers of Impacts, the report states "Impacts may also be triggered by combinations of factors, including "impact cascades" through secondary consequences of changed systems". Australia's pledge is to cut 2005-level emissions 26-28 per cent by 2030, a target environmental groups such as the Climate Action Tracker describe as "insufficient". Current annual emissions are about 42 billion tonnes, implying about a decade of pollution before "the need to go vertical" to zero emissions to keep within the temperature limit.
In 2016 they were nearly twice that, and the Canadian government's current aim is to only cut to about 512 million tonnes a year.
The report has received a lukewarm response by Australia's center-right government.
"We need the political leadership and the decisive action".
"I am not going to rule out things based on ideology", he told reporters in Sydney on Tuesday.
McCormack said he recognizes the concerns laid out in the IPCC report.
Crucial changes are needed - similar to the comprehensive economic reform that Vietnam started 40 years ago - to reduce GHG emissions and generate green jobs towards a resilient and sustainable society, she stated.
