The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently released a new report summarizing the panel’s three massive climate change studies. “Human influence on the climate system is clear and growing, with impacts observed on all continents,” a press release about the report said. If left unchecked, climate change threatens “irreversible and dangerous impacts.”
IPCC Chair R.K. Pachauri of India, quoted in that press release, said:
“We have the means to limit climate change. The solutions are many and allow for continued economic and human development. All we need is the will to change, which we trust will be motivated by knowledge and an understanding of the science of climate change.”
