"“It doesn’t cost the world to save the planet,” said economist Professor Ottmar Edenhofer, who led the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) team."
Personally, all things considered, from 42 years participating in "Conservation Societies" aka the Greens, observing nature, deforestation, species-extinction, the science, and human trends away from harmony with nature, I'd say this bloke is dreaming, albeit that I am onside with the existence and work to now, of the IPCC.
"The cheapest and least risky route to dealing with global warming is to abandon all dirty fossil fuels in coming decades, the report found."
So the end of the auto industry - global - ["as we've known it, Jim"] is the planet's best news this century!
People just have to grow up and shake the oilcorp et al, misinfo on Cannabis, and embrace it for it's industrial magnificence - bio-fuel and oil, polycarbonate instead of iron-ore-to-steel, seeds for top nutrition, as a medicinal, and as a carbon-soak for the air.
"The authoritative report, ....... dismisses fears that slashing carbon emissions would wreck the world economy. It ....... has already shown that climate change is “unequivocally” caused by humans and that, unchecked, it poses a grave threat to people and could lead to wars and mass migration."
Who'd of thunk!?
Is THAT why some Stoners call Cannabis the "Holy Herb", 'cause it alone, could resolve all those 'grave threats'?
The report is clear: the more you wait, the more it will cost [and] the more difficult it will become,” said EU commissioner Connie Hedegaard. The US secretary of state, John Kerry, said: “This report is a wake-up call about global economic opportunity we can seize today as we lead on climate change.”
The UK’s energy and climate secretary, Ed Davey, said: “The [report shows] the tools we need to tackle climate change are available, but international efforts need to significantly increase.”
So, Kerry tries to redeem hisself, after being exposed over Ukraine and the Palestine/Israel bullshit. Fair enough. At least he's addressing this larger crisis with useful words!
And the 3 biggies, USA, UK and Germany all complimenting the IPCC's report, should shake little Tiny Hobbott's whiteguy-strut blindness scales off, and get even the dumb LNP to embrace our Green Needs. But it remains for the Greens to direct Policy.
Do the IPCC also see the egomaniac anti-Nature citiphile aspirational, maximum-consumption church-schooled nutjobs being behind this, as a “fuck you!” response to being asked to live like sane Human Beings? “NOT MY FAST CAR!” stomp stomp! wank-wank!
"The benefits include reducing air pollution, which plagues China and recently hit the UK, ...."
Umm? "Recently hit the UK"? THEY STARTED IT!
"Biofuels, used in cars or power stations, could play a “critical role” in cutting emissions, the IPCC found, but it said the negative effects of some biofuels on food prices and wildlife remained unresolved."
"...could play..."? "...could play..."? "negative effects" "negative effects"....?

birds eat it,

"WWF’s Samantha Smith said: “The IPCC report makes clear that acting on emissions now is affordable, but delaying further increases the costs. It is a super strong signal to [fossil fuel] investors: they can no longer say they did not know the risks.”
And, that they are on THE list, as long as they stay egomaniacs and ignore THE SCIENCE.
"Kaisa Kosonen, at Greenpeace International, said: “Renewable energy is unstoppable. It’s becoming bigger, better and cheaper every day.
Dirty energy industries are sure to put up a fight [HA!] but it’s only a question of time before public pressure and economics dictate that they either change or go out of business.
Therefore, it's up to We The People, to force out the oil-corp political investors from all party funding, thus, to also in-one, force out of politics - the bribe-taking, sycophantic POLITICIANS!
