The IPCC report was published in October. Really alarming!

The report highlights a number of climate change impacts that could be avoided by limiting global warming to 1.5°C compared to 2°C, or more. For instance, by 2100, global sea level rise would be 10 cm lower with global warming of 1.5°C compared with 2°C. The likelihood of an Arctic Ocean free of sea ice in summer would be once per century with global warming of 1.5°C, compared with at least once per decade with 2°C. Coral reefs would decline by 70-90 percent with global warming of 1.5°C, whereas virtually all (> 99 percent) would be lost with 2°C.

Hi Alejandro,

thanks for sharing the report! I believe this to be extremely relevant not only because the climate change issues today is crucial but also because in less than one month Poland will host the Climate Change Conference organized by UN.
