Information regarding climate change

According to the UN-backed Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the world needs to ensure that greenhouse gas emissions peak within the next decade if it is to stand a reasonable chance of limiting average temperature rises to two degrees.

To meet this target, the IPCC recommended that industrialised nations cut their greenhouse gas emissions by 25 to 40 per cent on 1990 levels by 2020. Meanwhile, the largest developing nations would be required to slow the rate at which their emissions are growing by about the same date and ensure that emissions peak soon after.
