WE HAVE 12 YEARS TO LIMIT CLIMATE CHANGE CATASTROPHE, WARNS UN

"Urgent changes needed to cut risk of extreme heat, drought, floods and poverty, says IPCC"
Jonathon Watts of The Guardian, has reported ... "The world’s leading climate scientists have warned there is only a dozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C; beyond which, even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.
The authors of the landmark report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released on Monday, say urgent and unprecedented changes are needed to reach the target; which they say is affordable and feasible, although it lies at the most ambitious end of the Paris agreement pledge to keep temperatures between 1.5C and 2C.
The half-degree difference could also prevent corals from being completely eradicated and ease pressure on the Arctic, according to the 1.5C study, which was launched after approval at a final plenary of all 195 countries, in Incheon in South Korea that saw delegates hugging one another, with some in tears."

EndClimateSilence.org is a volunteer organization dedicated to helping the media link stories about climate-change impacts to climate change itself. Mobilizing through digital activism, we focus on all media platforms—from television networks to print outlets to online content providers to radio programs. We are motivated by the awareness that climate change poses a grave danger to humanity and we must transition from fossil fuels to safe energy immediately, in order to preserve a planet that supports civilization. We see that climate change has begun to hurt people, and it's the media's job to report on that fact.
