The IPCC’s Warming Warnings

Posted on: Fri 13 Aug 2021

This week, a damning report released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has warned that we could reach global warming of 1.5°C by the end of 2030 if carbon emissions aren’t drastically reduced globally.

Warming of 1.5°C is projected to cause increased intensity and frequency of hot weather events, marine heatwaves, agricultural and ecological droughts, reductions in Arctic sea ice and snow, and other weather-related disasters.

Zeb Nicholls, a PhD researcher from The University of Melbourne’s Climate & Energy College joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann to discuss what we should make of the report and what we can do to help.
