Historical IPCC report warns of man’s action on earth and its risks
08/07/2021 Since 2 months

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published its sixth and final report assessing the current state of the global climate system and the impacts of climate change.

The report, prepared by hundreds of scientists around the world and approved by almost all governments, concludes that the outlook could get much worse if action is not taken immediately regarding the small possibility that remains of avoiding warming above 1.5°C. Consequently, the IPCC warns that the climate threshold is approaching and urges that governments and the private sector take action on it. It also highlights that it is key to accelerate the era of climate innovation and renewable transition.

The document has a full report and two summaries. The Summary for Policymakers (SPM) provides a high-level summary of understanding the current state of the climate, including how it is changing and the role of human influence, and the state of knowledge about possible climate futures, climate information relevant to regions and sectors, and limiting human-induced climate change.

The Technical Summary (TS) is designed to bridge between the comprehensive assessment of the Working Group I Chapters and its SPM. It is primarily built from the Executive Summaries of the individual chapters and atlas and provides a synthesis of key findings based on multiple lines of evidence.
