NATURAL RESOURCE DEFENSE COUNCIL: Leading Scientific Panel Shows Urgency of Political Action to Avoid Climate Chaos

Natural Resource Defense Council issued the following announcement on Oct. 9.

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is scheduled to release its special report today underscoring the urgency to sharply reduce fossil fuel use and increase clean energy and efficiency worldwide to hold global warming to 1.5°C, or 2.7°Fahrenheit, and avoid severe damages from climate change.

Following is a statement from David Doniger, senior strategic director of the Climate and Clean Energy Program at the Natural Resources Defense Council:

“The apathy and inaction of our political leaders is dooming our children and grandchildren to a nightmarish world of climate chaos. Already, climate-changing pollution is intensifying heatwaves, wildfires, droughts, torrential rains, floods, hurricanes and sea level rise.

“The IPCC’s report reaffirms that far worse climate hardship is on the way. That’s why political leaders and polluters must be held accountable. They must wake up and take immediate steps to slash climate pollution and accelerate clean energy.”
