Reading time: The Sixth IPCC Report (2021)

The report clearly states that climate has changed due to anthropogenic activities and that it is humans who are warming the planet. According to the report and in the summary for policy makers:

Global surface temperature will continue to increase until at least the mid-century under all emissions scenarios considered. Global warming of 1.5°C and 2°C will be exceeded during the 21st century unless deep reductions in CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions occur in the coming decades.

Let us all become climate activists

If what Simon Lewis and Mark Maslin say in their article in The Conversation is true, we all need to become activists. Following the disappointing results of Glasgow’s COP26 by what was called by George Monbiot the suicide pact, we are far from acknowledging the problem let alone dealing with it. Monbiot also claims that movements like “Fridays for Future” managed to push the system into a “critical state,” however, the pandemic interrupted their flow. He suspects the momentum is building again. Let’s be there.
