Climate change panel vets landmark global warming report

To the surprise of many - especially scientists, who had based almost a decade of research on the assumption that 2 degrees Celsius was the politically acceptable guardrail for a climate-safe world - the treaty also called for a good-faith effort to cap warming at the lower threshold.

The 48th plenary session of the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) held in Songdo city of South Korea from October 1 to 5 has prepared the report, the Ministry of Forest and Environment stated. The report will also analyze the impacts that would occur at 1.5 degrees Celsius and 2 degrees Celsius, or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

With a 1.5 degree temperature rise already enough to sow climate chaos, drafts of the report have confirmed the need to cap a global temperature rise at "well-below" 2 degrees, as mandated by the landmark Paris deal.

Diplomats gathering in South Korea on Monday found themselves in the awkward position of vetting and validating a major United Nations scientific report that underscores the failure of their governments to take stronger action on climate.

Ministry spokesman Dr Sindhu Prasad Dhungana said that the report basically dwells on common understanding regarding the rise in global temperature by 1.5 degree Celsius, the prediction regarding climate change, the possible impacts and risks of climate change.

It will analyse the Paris Agreement's goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius and the potential implications of a world that is growing increasingly warm.

Likewise, other topics covered by the report include the ways of reducing carbon emission to address the global warming and the sustainable development goals and strengthening the world-wide efforts in the context of poverty reduction.

With only a single degree Celsius of warming so far, the world has seen a climate-enhanced crescendo of deadly heatwaves, wild fires and floods, along with superstorms swollen by rising seas.

China is said to have reservations on the chapters outlining policy options, concerned that some of the measures outlined may be too ambitious.
