UN report predicts catastrophic consequences if greenhouse gas emissions not reduced by 2030

UN report predicts catastrophic consequences if greenhouse gas emissions not reduced by 2030 | 07 Oct 2018 | A new report from a United Nations panel warns that the world might be on a path toward catastrophic climate change if greenhouse gas emissions aren't cut dramatically by 2030. The report, released late Sunday by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, says the world needs to decrease emissions by 45 percent by 2030, or else the atmosphere could hit 1.5 degrees of warming by then. At that level of warming -- as measured as the Earth's average temperature compared with pre-industrial levels -- up to 90 percent of tropical coral reefs could die, Arctic warming could cause multiple feet of sea level rise and yields of key crops would drop.
