Former Vice President Al Gore, is warning the world that it’s running out of time on Global Warming.
Former Vice President Al Gore warned the world was “running out of time” to stop catastrophic global warming in a statement published after the United Nations released its special climate report Sunday night.
“Today the world’s leading scientific experts collectively reinforced what Mother Nature has made clear – that we need to undergo an urgent and rapid transformation to a global clean energy economy,” Gore said in a statement.
“However, time is running out, so we must capitalize and build upon the solutions available today. Solving the climate crisis requires vision and leadership,” Gore said before attacking President Donald Trump.
The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a special report on keeping future warming in line with the stretch goal of the Paris climate accord. The report is meant to send a dire warning ahead of a UN climate summit in December
To keep future warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius, the IPCC said greenhouse gas emissions must fall 45 percent below 2010 levels by 2030. Emissions must decrease 100 percent by 2050, according to the report.
The world would have to largely abandon its use of coal for electricity and use more solar and wind power, the IPCC said. However, the IPCC noted the costs of such a transition would be high, and options could include a carbon tax as high as $27,000 per ton by 2100.
The IPCC’s report also admitted that many types of extreme weather, including tropical cyclones and droughts, aren’t being made more frequent or intense by global warming.
