IPCC Urges ‘Faster Action’ on Global Warming

Faster action is needed to keep global warming to agreed limits and delays until 2030 could force reliance on technologies to extract greenhouse gases from the air, argues IPCC

The United Nations (UN) says faster action is needed to keep global warming to agreed limits and delays until 2030 could force reliance on technologies to extract greenhouse gases from the air.
 
In its latest report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which drew on the work of more than 1 000 experts, says a shift from fossil fuels to low-carbon energy such as wind, solar or nuclear power was affordable and will shave only about 0.06 percent point a year off world economic growth.
 
"We have a window of opportunity for the next decade, and maximum the next two decades" to act at moderate costs, says Ottmar Edenhofer, co-chair of a Berlin meeting of the IPCC.
