Climate change: IPCC report warns of ‘irreversible’ impacts of global warming, cries BBC News.
Many of the impacts of global warming are now simply “irreversible” according to the UN’s latest assessment.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says that humans and nature are being pushed beyond their abilities to adapt.
Over 40% of the world’s population are “highly vulnerable” to climate, the sombre study finds.

Climate change: Scientists warn food and water supplies around the world could collapse unless action is taken, reports i-news.
The world has only a “brief and rapidly closing window” to prevent irreversible climate impacts that threaten to destroy ecosystems and plunge society into chaos.

UN report to lay bare harrowing scale of climate impacts, says Phys.org.
The devastating scale of climate change impacts will be unveiled Monday in a landmark UN report expected to show that warming already threatens billions of people and crucial ecosystems.
Extreme weather, ecosystem collapse, mosquito-borne disease, water shortages and reduced crop yields are already measurably worse due to rising temperatures.
Just in the last year, the world has seen a cascade of unprecedented floods, heatwaves and wildfires across four continents.

IPCC: Climate change taking lives and livelihoods now and driving disease and crop failure, says UN report – but there is still a window to act says Sky News.
At least 3.3 billion people are already highly vulnerable, half of animals have already shifted towards the poles and, while it’s not too late to act, the window to limit the damage is narrowing, the latest United Nations (UN) climate report warns.

That’s quite enough of all that, thank you.
