Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), a climate change skeptic, said of the actions urged by the report.

In response to the IPCC report released this week, U.S. Sen.

At the dialogue, information on the newly approved Special Report of the IPCC on the impacts of global warming of 1.5ºC and issues related to global greenhouse gas emissions were also shared.

"One way we're each experiencing climate change today is in the form of extreme weather", writes Axios' Andrew Freedman in "Cheat sheet: How climate change affects our weather". But we already know that one conclusion of the United Nations report is dead wrong. Since the mid-1800s the climate has already warmed by 1C.

Assessing the mental health reports of people affected by Hurricane Katrina to reports from comparable areas that hadn't experienced such a natural disaster found that exposure to tropical cyclones was also linked to worsened mental health.

Wiesen commended Vietnam for making significant efforts in climate change adaptation and as the first country in Asia to be awarded with a Green Climate Fund project that is building resilience for coastal vulnerable communities, especially the most-at risk poor and ethnic groups.

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says there will be irreversible changes and the entire loss of some ecosystems if the world doesn't take immediate and intensive action to cut greenhouse gas emissions far more than is occurring now.

Jacqueline Spence, Jamaica's climate change focal point for the IPCC, who was present at the meeting held in Korea last week, agreed.

Google Plus to close after data exposed
By the company's reckoning, up to 438 applications may have been able to access private profile data because of the software bug. When those friends signed into apps using Google +, app developers ask for permission to get profile information and are granted.

Thanh noted that in addition to the adoption of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, Vietnam has issued guidance for the implementation of the agreement focusing on the UN's Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

The Paris accord was signed three years ago by nearly 200 nations, who pledged to keep warming to 1.5-2 degrees.

Earlier, the IPCC in a new assessment said limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society.

Canada would have to cut its emissions nearly in half over the next 12 years to meet the stiffer targets dozens of worldwide climate change experts say is required to prevent catastrophic results from global warming. And in 2017, President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the 2015 Paris Agreement, in which almost 200 countries committed to cutting emissions to keep global temperature rise below 2°C, with the larger goal of trying to keep warming to 1.5° above pre-Industrial levels.

A leaked draft of the EU's proposed long-term climate strategy showed that the bloc's targets do not line up with the urgency of action needed to limit temperature rise to 1.5°C. That makes the company the fourth major USA coal supplier to file for bankruptcy in recent years due to the significant decline in coal use.

"I am anxious for kids and grandkids, and this just shows the things we can all do that affect our children and grandchildren", said Samantha Campbell, 20, a sophomore who is studying commercial songwriting.

Under President Donald Trump, the USA has rapidly moved to eliminate policies aimed at reducing the nation's carbon footprint ― even as other top emitters of carbon dioxide like China have taken steps to curb emissions.

In an exclusive interview with, Cambridge University's Professor Rees outlined what he viewed as the only viable "win-win solution" to controlling climate change.
