“Now or never” is the stark warning issued by the world’s leaders in climate science, when the most recent UN Climate change committee report came out.

This latest report is a litany of broken climate pledges.

Cities and municipalities should be developed and built to produce a minimum of energy.

Today’s report by the IPCC’s third working group focuses on reducing global warming.

In theory, temperature increase may be kept below 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century, but even a temporary “overshoot” might irreversibly damage fragile ecosystems around poles, mountains, and shoreline.

“It’s now or never if we want to limit global warming to 1.5C,” said Professor Jim Skea, co-leader of the Ipcc task force that assembles the research from hundreds of scientists for the report.
