From: The Guardian, on 8 October 2018

The world’s leading climate scientists have warned there is only a dozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C, beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.

The authors of the landmark report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released on Monday say urgent, unprecedented yet affordable and feasible changes are needed to reach the target, although it lies at the most ambitious end of the Paris agreement pledge to keep temperatures between 1.5C and 2C.
