The world has to cut emissions in half in the next ten years, yet emissions continue to rise globally. The effects of climate change are intensifying and increasingly impacting nature and humans.
Average global temperatures have risen by around 1.1ºC since pre-industrial times, with severe consequences for our climate. In Australia and California, changes in temperature extremes and precipitation conditions have worsened droughts and likely intensified forest fires. Greenland is losing ice seven times faster than in the 1990s.
