I want to highlight this comment from Peter Wadhams
“The two bizarre aspects of this are:
1. The politicians talk about taking big bold actions (in a New Zealand context). But compared with what China is doing to destroy the world, even the biggest boldest action by New Zealand will have an infinitesimal impact.
2. IPCC are doing what they have always done – willed the result without describing the means of getting there.
They talk only of reducing emissions – real climate scientists are well beyond that dead-end and into CO2 removal methods like direct air capture – nothing else can stop us from continuing to heat up.
I felt my heart sink when I saw this worthless report.”
The climate is changing, faster than we thought – and humans have caused it. Last night, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the most comprehensive report on climate change ever – with hundreds of scientists taking part.
