"The most important thing in that report is that electricity emissions have declined by 13.9 percent in the year to March 2018", she said. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), a climate change skeptic, said of the actions urged by the report.

She then said the call to phase out coal power by 2050 was "drawing a very long bow", casting doubt on the expertise of the world's leading climate scientists.

"Feeding a world population of 10 billion people is possible - yet only if we change the way we eat, and the way we produce food", said Johan Rockström, director designate of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, who is one of the authors of the study.

The latest data also prove that Trump has been vindicated in his decision to pull out of the Paris Accord. Unfortunately, the conclusions are grim, with many impacts looking close to what we used to associate with a 2.0 degree rise.

Scott allegedly made the seas warmer by supporting Trump's decision to "unilaterally withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, [banning] the use of the phrases "global warming" and "climate change" from state documents, websites and office discussions and approved Florida's so-called 'anti-science law, ' which critics say was aimed at allowing legal challenges to the teaching of the realities of climate change and global warming in the state's classrooms".

As the IPCC points out, a price on carbon emissions is also imperative to slowing climate change.

That nexus in reality is so powerful that it has potential to transform the global pathways for action on climate change.

More than 60 leading climate scientists and health experts, a lot of them from Washington state, are urging support for a carbon fee on the November ballot.

- The West Antarctic ice sheet might not kick into irreversible melting. Its prognosis for the planet is grim: We may have as little as 12 years to act on climate change - to slash global emissions 45 percent - to reach this target. A rise in temperatures can lead to far more deaths in the summer heat. Together, higher temperatures and precipitation changes will decrease soil moisture and increase drought.

The report was commissioned by the United Nations to see what would happen if global average temperatures rose by 1.5°C above preindustrial levels, and what it would take to cap warming at that level.

The Trump administration has dismantled emissions reduction policies domestically, and vowed to ditch the Paris treaty on attempting to reduce greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. However, scientists and climate change researchers were quick to vocalize their doubts about the cap and how effective and practical it would be. their goal felt so unattainable that they proposed a second cap, aiming to stall the rise in temperature at 2 degrees Celsius, (3.6 Fahrenheit). The IPCC accepted the invitation, adding that the Special Report would look at these issues in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty.

"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. Miami will be particularly affected by sea-level rise; a study published previous year in the journal Nature concluded that rising seas as a result of climate change could cause more than 2.5 million Miami residents to flee the city.
