IPCC report is 'code red for humanity'

Human activity is changing the climate in unprecedented and sometimes irreversible ways, a major UN scientific report has said.

The landmark study warns of increasingly extreme heatwaves, droughts and flooding, and a key temperature limit being broken in just over a decade.

The report "is a code red for humanity", says the UN chief.

But scientists say a catastrophe can be avoided if the world acts fast.

Let's face the climate challenge head on

I wonder if you have ever been confronted by a situation where you are expected to do something but feel you don’t have the knowledge, skill or desire to actually do it? This might be in the form of public speaking, perhaps at a wedding, anniversary or business presentation; stage fright in that first nativity play; or something as simple as climbing a ladder, for those with a fear of heights.

For many when confronted with such a challenge the urge is to decline, wherever possible, or to find the nearest sofa behind which to hide.

Join our Book Club

The Zero Carbon Harrogate book club aims to encourage members to read and then discuss various novels and works of popular non-fiction, across multiple perspectives, on the subject of the environment, to help think about the world in different ways.
