Radical action needed to save Great Barrier Reef, major climate report warns

Radical action needed to save Great Barrier Reef, major climate report warns | 08 Oct 2018 | A major climate report warns the window of opportunity to avoid total destruction of the Great Barrier Reef is closing and a near-collapse of some human and natural systems is imminent, meaning radical action is needed in the next few years to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees. The report says the unprecedented transition will require "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society" including the energy and agriculture sectors, transport, the built environment and industry. Coal-generated electricity must be phased out globally by 2050, while renewables would make up 70 to 85 per cent of electricity, if the 1.5 degree limit is to be met.
