Today, Monday 9th August saw the release of the 6th Climate assessment by the IPCC. It is grim, sobering reading.
Simply put, if we do not get Carbon Dioxide out of our energy mix as fast as we can we are, I quote:
- facing increases in the frequency and intensity of hot extremes, marine heatwaves, and heavy precipitation, agricultural and ecological droughts in some regions, and proportion of intense tropical cyclones, as well as reductions in Arctic sea ice, snow cover and permafrost"
- I go on in a quote "Continued global warming is projected to further intensify the global water cycle, including its variability, global monsoon precipitation and the severity of wet and dry events"
