Trump suggests the climate may actually be 'fabulous' after ominous United Nations report

Trump suggests the climate may actually be 'fabulous' after ominous United Nations report

The first news came in from city of Incheon in South Korea where IPCC-Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations body of climate experts from 40 countries, released "The Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 deg C".

What's the difference? With a 1-degree rise, about 14 percent of the world's population would be vulnerable to severe and deadly heat waves every five years; with a 2-degree rise, that figure jumps to 37 percent.

The burning of fossil fuels on an industrial scale has raised global temperatures by about 1 degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit). For instance, by 2100, the global sea level rise would be 10cm lower with global warming of 1.5ºC compared with 2ºC. This quick commitment confirms just how serious they are. The world may only have 12 years left to act on climate change before a global catastrophe breaks out. "Extreme weather is becoming more common".

At the dialogue, information on the newly approved Special Report of the IPCC on the impacts of global warming of 1.5ºC and issues related to global greenhouse gas emissions were also shared.

"How is that new?" That shows the degree of confidence they have in their predictions, he said.

"I am anxious for kids and grandkids, and this just shows the things we can all do that affect our children and grandchildren", said Samantha Campbell, 20, a sophomore who is studying commercial songwriting.

"It hasn't been on my finance agenda or banking agenda", Scott said, referring to the Senate committees he serves on and the issues on which he focuses his attention.

"We need each of us to think about our carbon footprint".

Carbon dioxide emissions would have to begin declining immediately and reach net neutrality between 2040 and 2050.

"We urge investors to view the United Nations report as a call to put their capital to work in ways that benefit both their finances and the environment", Jon Gordon, Vincent Heaney, Sagar Khandelwal, and Christopher Swann wrote in a note this week.

Brexit deal next week 'within reach': Barnier
He also said the European Union wants to carry out Irish border checks after Brexit "in the least intrusive way possible". The de-facto Deputy Prime Minister was pressed on the DUP's support when he appeared on ITV's Peston on Wednesday night.

Only one GOP senator approached by HuffPost signaled an openness to delving into the report: Sen.

The point is whether the human race will find the collective political and moral will to fight climate change. "With two degrees of global warming, that's more like 90 to 99 percent". Rain-fed agriculture is already marginal across much of the country, and anticipated climate change may well make current agricultural practices unviable at 1.5℃ and above.

Closer to home, the message from the Director General of S.P.R.E.P., Leota Kosi Latu, perhaps sums up well how all of us in this part of the world view the I.P.C.C's latest report.

Under President Donald Trump, the USA has rapidly moved to eliminate policies aimed at reducing the nation's carbon footprint ― even as other top emitters of carbon dioxide like China have taken steps to curb emissions.

While institutional investors have been concerned with climate change as a risk factor to the global economy and long-term returns, their work in the area has ramped up after the election of Trump and its movement in the opposite direction, resolving among other things to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. Australia exports significantly to other Pacific countries.

Without specifying which reports he was talking about, he signaled that other were as valid as the UN's: "I can give you reports that are fabulous and I can give you reports that aren't so good". "So, you know, to say that it has got to be phased out by 2050 is drawing a very long bow".
