The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) latest reports on climate change has raised a fresh wave of concerns among the scientific community. It has found that rising temperatures affect each and every living being on earth.


The study, whose conclusions will be published on February 28th, underscores the need to tackle more short-term, contiguous threats as countries across the world look to cut carbon emissions and adopt more sustainable alternatives.


According to C40 Group’s Executive Director, Mark Watts, "It is always the immediate that takes precedence. So if you've got to deal with a big influx of migrants, or a massive flood event, that's where the focus is going to be.”


The latest IPCC report will highlight important “tipping points” that can possibly be surpassed as temperatures continue to rise everywhere, like the irreversible melting of the ice sheet in Greenland.


However, the study will also focus on potential technological alternatives to counter the present climate crisis as the world continues to grow warmer.
