IPCC Confirms We Must Act Now on Climate Change: Briefing Paper #37

IPRCC - How Hot will it getKAIROS’ latest briefing paper evaluates the strength and weaknesses of the recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It cites a new study by climate scientist James Hansen showing how burning just one-third of remaining fossil fuels would make the Earth uninhabitable. The paper describes how both the carbon budget suggested by the IPCC and the International Energy Agency’s calculations highlight the need to keep most known fossil fuel reserves, especially from the tar sands, in the ground. It concludes with a discussion of tar sands export pipelines and feasible alternatives for reducing our dependence on fossil fuels.
