Dear WESSA Members, Affiliated Friends Groups and their Members,

PLEASE forward to all your members.

Find below the summary of the main points of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report that details the big differences between a 1,5 and 2 degree global temperature increase, which was published on Monday this week.

In essence, the report stresses that we cannot continue with business-as-usual if we are to ward off the full impact of runaway climate change. We need to adopt new approaches to how things are done. All our actions, large and small, in response to this looming threat are very important.
