The extent to which current and future generations will experience a hotter and different world depends on choices now and in the near-term.
The report published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) yesterday underscores the need to address the climate emergency now, urgently. This synthesis of the most up-to-date science from a global community of experts adds yet more certainty, more data, and more detail to a simple truth: Unless we reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by at least 43% this decade, we are locking ourselves into a future of escalating climate extremes, food crises, and nature loss.
While there has been significant progress on the climate agenda over the past years, the IPCC report is clear: It’s the pace at which we decarbonize our societies that will determine our success. Unless we supercharge climate action this decade, the Paris Agreement goals will be lost.

Overshooting will need expensive, unproven technology to pull CO2 from the air, something known as carbon capture.
