Climate emergency.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)  has released its latest report.  The report warns climate change has rapidly altered the atmosphere,  and has generated more extreme weather events.

The report confirms we are now 1.1 degrees above pre-industrial temperatures,  that humans are unequivocally increasing our greenhouse gas emissions, which is leading increasing in the global temperature. The choices we take now will have long consequences, potentially for thousands of years. The key message is to Act Now.
