The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its latest climate science report this week, highlighting the scientific reality and risks of the climate crisis. With the window to keep warming below 1.5°C is closing rapidly, the panel says that the pace and scale of emissions cuts will need to accelerate significantly in the current decade. "The climate time-bomb is ticking," UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres told a press conference. "Our world needs climate action on all fronts — everything, everywhere, all at once." Fossil fuels in particular need to be targeted, he suggested. None of these scientific findings are new, however. This latest report is a "synthesis" of the IPCC's Sixth Assessment that integrates the conclusions from several previously released reports. It also includes an influential "summary for policymakers," which is used by governments to support policy planning and helps to shape UN climate change negotiations.
