(E) The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has just released today its latest Climate Change 2014 Synthesis Report. Please read the press release, the report and watch the press conference:
Press Release: IPCC Press Release
Synthesis Report: Climate Change 2014 Synthesis Report
Please note that as said by this new report, and also not a surprise:
“The Synthesis Report makes a clear case that many risks constitute particular challenges for the least developed countries and vulnerable communities, given their limited ability to cope. People who are socially, economically, culturally, politically, institutionally, or otherwise marginalized are especially vulnerable to climate change.
Indeed, limiting the effects of climate change raise issues of equity, justice, and fairness and is necessary to achieve sustainable development and poverty eradication. “Many of those most vulnerable to climate change have contributed and contribute little to greenhouse gas emissions” R.K. Pachauri – chair of the IPCC – said. “Addressing climate change will not be possible if individual agents advance their own interests independently; it can only be achieved through cooperative responses, including international cooperation.”
Note: The picture above is my new Arbutus Marina, a tree native to California, which is going to absorb carbon emissions just close to our main house entrance for us every day.
