IPCC report on climate change   Leave a comment

On March 31, 2014 the IPCC working group on climate change published their latest report. An article in the Guardian indicates that, “The picture it paints with respect to the consequences of continued climate change is rather bleak.

“The good news is that the IPCC reports that many of these climate risks can be reduced by cutting greenhouse gas emissions and thus avoiding the worst climate change scenarios. The IPCC states with high confidence that risks associated with reduced agricultural yields, water scarcity, inundation of coastal infrastructure from sea-level rise, and adverse impacts from heat waves, floods, and droughts can be reduced by cutting human greenhouse gas emissions.”
