IPCC Climate report: from ‘code red’ to ‘acute emergency’
The report warns that only with drastic and large-scale measures it is still possible to increase the average temperature on earth by no more than 1.5 degrees.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres concludes on the basis of the report that the fossil fuel industry is doomed. An important explanation for the warming is the emission of greenhouse gases from the use of fossil fuels and, according to Guterres, the extraction of coal, oil and gas must end. The report amounts to a “code red” warning, the UN chief said.
