(ANSA)-Rome, April 5-Italian climate activists said the latest report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has reached “where we are now or never”. Later, he wants more bold action at all levels. Stop the catastrophe of the global environment.
UN scientists say carbon emissions peaked by 2025 and then declined rapidly in all sectors, net by the early 2050s, to prevent temperature rises above 1.5 ° C. He said he needed to reach zero.
The IPCC Working Group III report on “Climate Change Mitigation” includes, among other things, significant reductions in fossil fuel use, widespread electrification, improved energy efficiency, and alternative fuels.
Scientists have emphasized that humanity has the tools and know-how needed to limit global warming, increasing energy efficiency, reducing deforestation rates, and accelerating the introduction of renewable energy policies and legislation. Was quoted.
“The last part of the IPCC report is evidence that there are solutions that can help mitigate the effects of climate change,” said Asia Gereschi, a researcher at the Circular Economy and an activist in the Italian division of the Climate Reality Project. Told ANSA.
“As IPCC scientists and experts explained at the press conference, crossing this issue with options that help everyone address the key questions for a just and equitable transition that is part of the solution. You need to understand the nature of the science.
“Sadly, as the war in Ukraine has shown, there is an urgent need for renewable energy and net-zero solutions.
“It’s also important to understand which lifestyle changes are needed, such as reducing meat consumption and flying.
“The IPCC is showing us that effective options are available and that we are all involved in the solution.”
The Working Group III Report is the third of the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report, which will be completed this year.
Even if all the policies the government has implemented to reduce carbon emissions by the end of 2020 are fully implemented, it is said that the catastrophic 3.2C of this century will still warm the world.
Stefano Siafani, chairman of the Environmental Association Legambiente, said the report shows that halving carbon emissions over the next eight years is “necessary and feasible.”
“In addition to implementing more ambitious climate policies in line with the 1.5 ° target, Italy must envision truly courageous measures that can no longer be delayed,” Ciafani said.
“Accelerating the development of renewable energy sources, including Russian gas, Legambiente, Greenpeace Italy, WW FItalia and Confindustria Elettricità Futura are seeking” “. (ANSA).
