THE FACTS AND FIGURES
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or IPCC is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. The IPCC currently has 195 members. Thousands of people from
all over the world contribute to the work of the IPCC. Experts volunteer their time as IPCC authors to assess the
thousands of scientific papers published each year to create helpful and understandable summaries. In this era of fake news and general mistrust it's important to realise that this information is trustworthy.
THE WORLD IS GETTING WARMER
The evidence is clear that the world is getting warmer.
CLIMATE CHANGE IS SCARY!
The green line represents promises to cut emissions by countries that have signed up to the Paris Climate Treaty.
WHAT CAN I DO AND WILL IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
YES! The latest IPCC report said that we have options in all sectors to at least halve emissions by 2030.
Limiting warming to around 1.5°C requires global greenhouse gas emissions to peak before 2025 at the latest, and to be reduced by 43% by 2030
