It’s unequivocal: Humans are warming the planet
For the first time, the IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] states unequivocally — leaving absolutely no room for doubt – humans are responsible for the observed warming of the atmosphere, lands and oceans.
The IPCC finds Earth’s global surface temperature warmed 1.09℃ between 1850-1900 and the last decade. This is 0.29℃ warmer than in the previous IPCC report in 2013.
ACTIONS REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE PARIS TARGETS
There is a near-linear relationship between the cumulative emissions of CO2 by humans and global warming. This allows a carbon budget to be defined for a given warming target, with the proviso that this budget depends on assumptions including climate system feedbacks.
Overall, the AR6 report is an important step in further solidifying our understanding of climate risk. The conclusions of the report echo strongly previous reports that near immediate and very deep cuts to greenhouse gas emissions are now overdue and any further delay commits us to an escalating risk of climate extremes. At a global scale, current commitments to reductions in emissions remain too small, and the reduction in emissions too slow, to avoid in excess of 2oC warming and multiple consequences to the climate of Australia
