Global warming is dangerously close to spiraling out of control, a U.N. climate panel said in a landmark report Aug. 9, warning the world is already certain to face further climate disruptions for decades, if not centuries, to come. Humans are “unequivocally” to blame, the report from the scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said. Rapid action to cut greenhouse gas emissions could limit some impacts, but others are now locked in. The deadly heat waves, gargantuan typhoons and other weather extremes that are already happening will only become more severe. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres described the report as a “code red for humanity.” “The alarm bells are deafening,” he said in a statement. “This report must sound a death knell for coal and fossil fuels, before they destroy our planet.” Starting on Oct. 31, the U.N. COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, will try to wring more ambitious climate action out of the world’s nations, and the money to go with it.
