CHALLENGE AND OPPORTUNITY
The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report on the
impact of 1.5 °C and 2°C warming above pre-industrial levelsii sends a stark
reminder to humanity about the existential threat posed by climate change. To
avoid the worst of the predicted outcomes, global carbon emissions must be
cut by half by 2030, to zero by 2050. This is an unprecedented task, requiring a
reduction rate of at least 7% annually; no country has to date achieved more
than 1.5%. The only possible response is emergency action that will transform
human social, economic and financial systems.
