A recent report released by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) urges governments worldwide to take urgent steps to slow global warming to a maximum of 1.5-degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, half a degree less than the 2-degree Celsius goal set by the Paris climate agreement. The document warns that, without major changes over the next 12 years, an increasing global temperature will result in a major threat to food security, frequent extreme weather events and many other adverse environmental and societal consequences.
