UN scientists say Climate change IPCC report is ‘code red for humanity’

Landmark report from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change from global scientists says the window is rapidly closing to avoid catastrophic changes that would transform life as we know it. The report concludes it is “unequivocal” that humans have caused the climate crisis and confirms that “widespread and rapid changes” have already occurred, some of them irreversibly.

Heating from humans has caused irreparable damage to the Earth that may get worse in coming decades, a UN climate report has concluded.

Humanity’s damaging impact on the climate is a “statement of fact”, UN scientists have found in unprecedented research combining more than 14,000 studies.
