“Early action will reap dividends,” said Rebecca Barthelmie, lecturer at Sydney’s Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

To avert an ecological disaster, other strategies for tackling greenhouse gases will have to be implemented too, the report suggested.

At the beginning of August, task force I of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) declared that climate change was fast and intensifying, and that the Earth’s atmosphere might increase by 1.5 ° Celsius in average warming by 2040.
