Limiting the temperature rise to 1.5º C would make it easier to achieve the United NationsSustainable Development Goals, said Priyardarshi Shukla, cochair of IPCC Working Group III. We need to make to make major changes in transportation, buildings, industry, and how we use land. "If you would like to stabilize global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius the key message is that net Carbon dioxide emissions at the global scale must reach zero by 2050". There is now greater confidence in time-bound projections on the impacts of climate change on agriculture, health, water security and extreme weather.
"There were doubts if we would be able to differentiate impacts set at 1.5 C and that came so clearly". However, Washington did not obstruct the report, as some had expected.
But no matter how many warnings we receive - and let's be honest, at this point we have had far too many - no one is willing to put their foot down and pump the brakes.
"The good news is that some of the kinds of actions that would be needed to limit global warming to 1.5ºC are already underway around the world, but they would need to accelerate", one researcher said.
However, that changed in 2017 with a 1.4 per cent increase in emissions from China. The lower level would mean the Arctic Ocean would be free of sea ice in summer only once per century not at least once a decade under the higher target. Coral reefs would decline by 70-90 percent with global warming of 1.5 °C, whereas virtually all ( 99 percent) would be lost with 2 °C.
The report further revealed that global warming has already had an effect in regions across the world.
Kim Jong Un 'wants Pope Francis to visit North Korea'

While an extra half a degree over that limit of 1.5 degrees might seem insignificant‚ a shocking landmark report just released by the United Nations has taken the world by storm‚ showing how hitting a 2 degree rise would spell doom.
The data in the UN's new document is unlikely to sway Trump, who has vowed to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement and has taken steps to dismantle every major policy created to reduce the nation's carbon footprint.
Limiting warming to 1.5°C is possible within the laws of chemistry and physics but doing so would require unprecedented changes, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group III Jim Skea said.
This target was long considered the threshold for the most unsafe effects of climate change, including the mass destruction of coral reefs, widespread food shortages, destructive wildfires and coastal flooding.
The authors of the IPCC report estimate economic damages from flooding, drought, and other effects by 2040 of $54 trillion. "The next few years will be critical in the evolution of these efforts". We also will need to rely on carbon removal-whether that's as low-tech as planting trees or using new technology like direct air capture that can suck CO2 from the atmosphere.
Coal power would also need to be reduced to nearly nothing.
Scottish Greens' co-convener Patrick Harvie said: "We've always challenged the government to go further in its response to risky climate change".
