“It is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, oceans, and land.” That is the clear conclusion from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The news follows the first major review of the science surrounding climate change since 2013. The timing of the news release is clear as a major Glasgow, Scotland climate change summit called COP26 nears. It’s also a wake-up call for clean energy stocks.
The UN chief called the report a “code red for humanity” and several of its findings point to reasons for serious concern. According to the report, the last five years have been the hottest on record since 1850 and recent rates of sea level rise have nearly tripled compared to 1901-1971.
The report concludes that it is very likely, 90% certain, that human influence is the main driver of retreating glaciers since 1990 and decreasing arctic sea ice.
The alarming conclusions of the report were tempered by news that it isn’t too late to reverse the damage. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres was clear: “If we combine forces now, we can avert climate catastrophe. But, as today’s report makes clear, there is no time for delay and no room for excuses.”
