Science shows that global warming is accelerating faster than previously thought. The window of opportunity to limit the global mean temperature rise well below 2° C compared to preindustrial levels is closing rapidly.
Scientific evidence accumulating since the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report reveals that global warming is accelerating, at times far beyond projections outlined in earlier studies, including the latest IPCC Report. New modelling studies are providing updated and more detailed indications of the impacts of continued warming.
