@StockholmPlus50 Archbishop Anders Wijryd digs into why many faith leaders are joining the call for #FossilFuelTreaty and putting their names on the interfaith letter: fossilfueltreaty.org/faith-letter
@StockholmPlus50 .@jrockstrom shares his frustration that we are still continuing with rampant fossil fuel production when it has linked directly to more deaths than the COVID-19 pandemic has. We risk destabilizing the entire planet when we should hand our children a livable planet, but we're not

Key takeaways in this thread 🧵👇
Early this month, the @IPCC_CH published the Contributions of Working Group III to the Sixth Assessment Report.

The subject? Mitigation of #ClimateChange.

#IPCC #ClimateReport #ActOnClimate
Like previous #IPCC Reports, this one demonstrates:
🚩#ClimateChange is a present emergency
🚩Each increment of warming accelerates the scale & severity of the crisis
🚩Phasing out ALL #FossilFuels is the quickest & most effective way to end #ClimateChaos.

UN warns Earth 'firmly on track towards an unlivable world'.

“Limiting warming to 1.5C requires global greenhouse gas emissions to peak before 2025 at the latest and be reduced by 43% by 2030.”

Here's the thing about that dire #ClimateReport: We have the tools we need to fix things.

"The report is pretty clear; we have kind of all the solutions we need. When you look at what we need...it's not solutions that we've never heard of."

Looking for key takeaways from the @IPCC_CH's 6th Assessment #ClimateReport on buildings? Look no further:

earthnet.world/green-building…
1. Operating efficiency. Without strong policies to support true deep energy retrofits (achieving at least 80% whole building energy savings), we will not achieve Paris goals. Half measures impede further mitigation by locking in poor performance.
2. Renewable Energy. It highlights that for us to achieve a renewable energy future, we must maximize efficiency, and it recognizes that including energy generation in buildings is a step toward creating distributed energy systems. Buildings can become prosumers.

These are our 5 takeaways from the #IPCC report on #mitigation, looking at what it means for the #waste sector. Spoiler: we need to cut emissions as fast and furious as we can, and reducing #waste, #plastic and being more materials efficient can help lots
no-burn.org/ipcc-takeaways…
As the report points out, the #waste sector remains the largest contributor to urban emissions after the energy sector, even in low-carbon #cities. Urban areas themselves represent the lion’s share of global emissions, and it's increasing: from 60% in 2000 to 67% in 2015.
So, the @IPCC_CH #ClimateReport recognises that cities can significantly reduce emissions, but this requires systemic transformation: #circulareconomy, #inclusion, #equity, innovative technologies can make a huge contribution towards low carbon urban devel'mnt

"A litany of broken climate promises, a file of shame cataloguing empty pledges that put us on fast track to an unlivable world & climate disaster. This is what science tells us will result from our current energy policies." @antonioguterres 👏🔥

"Government and business leaders are saying one thing and doing another. Simply put, they are lying. Climate scientists warn we are close to tipping points that could lead to irreversible, cascading impacts." @antonioguterres
#IPCC #ClimateReport presser 2/n
"Current climate pledges mean 14% increase in emissions. We need 45% cut by 2030. The dangerous radicals are not activists, but countries investing in new fossil fuel infrastructure, which is moral and economic madness." @antonioguterres 💚

So that you are ready when the @IPCC_CH WGIII report on mitigation is published, a short guide to “decode” the statements in the summary for policy makers, with an example from WGII summary. #AR6 #ClimateReport
Statements are numbered. SPM meaning summary for policy makers. The letter is the section of the summary. The first number corresponds to the headline statement (i.e. the key message). The second number is the more precise message supporting the headline statement.
Sentences are qualified with confidence statements (e.g. very high confidence). These confidence statements are based on the type, amount, quality, and consistency of evidence (e.g., mechanistic understanding, theory, data, models, expert judgment) and the degree of agreement.

Alors que la 56ème session du GIEC @IPCC_CH se poursuit cette semaine en vue de l'approbation du rapport d'évaluation du groupe III sur l'atténuation, vous avez sûrement une question : comment le GIEC approuve-t-il les rapports ? #ClimateReport #AR6 Image
Eh bien, tout est expliqué ici : ipcc.ch/site/assets/up…

Je vous en traduit les points principaux:
Au terme de l'élaboration d'un rapport, les gouvernements membres du GIEC approuvent le rapport. Le processus d'approbation repose sur un dialogue entre ceux qui utiliseront le rapport - les gouvernements - et ceux qui l'ont rédigé - les scientifiques.

While we are working towards the approval of the summary for policy makers of the @IPCC_CH WGIII report on mitigation, meet the people who made this report. #ClimateReport #AR6
Here we are in one of the “physical” meetings we had. Four were planned, two could happen, and two were held online due to the pandemic. Also incalculable number of meetings online in smaller groups along the way…
On the picture you can see the WGIII bureau members, who are leading the whole process, with the help of the amazing Technical Support Unit team, and the coordinating and lead authors of the chapters as well as chapter scientists.

1/n 📢🧵: The @IPCC_CH launched their new report (WG2-AR6) this week, exploring the impacts of #climate risks, #adaptation & vulnerability. Here are some insights on the key takeaways for #India.🇮🇳🌏♻️
#ClimateReport #IPCC #IPCCReport
🔗Read Asia Ch. 10 ➡️ bit.ly/3twyIVI Image
2/n #India🇮🇳 is at risk of multiple #climaticrisks, many of which are accelerating in frequency & intensity. Rising temp.🌡️are likely to cause severe heat stress in summer, esp. in cities where temp.🌡️can be more than 2℃ warmer than the surroundings due to heat island effects. Image
3/n Extreme rainfall events are projected to lead to more frequent #flooding in settlements near vulnerable rivers & flood risks across the country will become more frequent & severe. Higher than 🌏 mean sea level rise for #Asia’s coasts exposes 🇮🇳’s large coastal population. Image

'Where are the numbers in the new #IPCC #WGII report??'
Irate journalists demanded to know at a press briefing with some IPCC authors over the weekend. A brief thread on why this IPCC report may contain the most (and most robust) qualitative social science knowledge yet.
The #IPCC process has been critiqued for being positivist and reductionist - favouring messages with numbers over descriptive contextual knowledge. @NavrozDubash, @MulugettaYacob and I attempted to summarise this here last year: link.springer.com/article/10.100…
We drew on established arguments, for example by Castree et al (2014) that previous efforts to consolidate climate change knowledge 'reveal a limited conception of social science and virtually ignore the humanities'. nature.com/articles/nclim…

1. I am a Co-ordinating lead author of the #IPCC #WGII Chapter 18 on Climate resilient development (CRD) pathways, along with @AromarRevi and @bl_preston. CRD a foundational concept for the WGII report. But what is it? #ClimateReport #IPCC
2. The key message of #IPCC #WGII #AR6 Ch 18 is: Every development choice now moves us toward or away from a climate resilient future. This means that more than before, we see the connection of #SustainableDevelopment and climate change.
3. #ClimateResilientDevelopment (#CRD) is defined as the strategic combination of adaptation to climate change with mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions to support sustainable development. #ClimateReport #IPCC #WGII.

What does the @IPCC_CH #ClimateReport say about cities and human settlements? An #urban #climate 🧵 (1/n)
First, the focus on cities is done on purpose; indeed, it was a key aspect across all Working Groups when the AR6 assessment was scoped back in 2017. (2/n) Image
Why so?
“In this AR6 there is a very strong focus on cities, urban areas, and their connection to rural areas...and given that the majority of people now live and work in cities, I think that focus on urban areas is really critical.” - Debra Roberts, WGII co-chair. (3/n) Image

Recently, @IPCC_CH released a new report worked by the WGII: Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability. This is the second part of its three-part, Sixth Assessment Report (AR6).
Check out the full report at: ipcc.ch/report/ar6/wg2/

Read the full thread.
#IPCC is the #UN’s #ClimateScience body, made up of hundreds of the world’s top climate scientists. They issue a set of major assessment reports every few years, in which they review thousands of peer-reviewed papers to reach a conclusion on the current state of the climate.
This #AR6 report states the science that explains the dangerous position we are in. We are already facing devastating #ClimateImpacts including heat waves, changes in rainfall, extreme weather patterns, and many social and economic crises. The costs have worsened over the years.
