Greta Thunberg: New IPCC Report Is a Wake-Up Call for All About the Escalating Climate Emergency

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg says the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change should serve as a “wake-up call” for governments to do more to lower emissions.

In its first major report in nearly a decade, the IPCC says the Earth could face runaway global warming unless drastic efforts are made to eliminate greenhouse gases and that humans are “unequivocally to blame for the climate crisis,” which is already causing widespread and rapid changes.

“The climate crisis is not going away,” Thunberg said. “It’s only escalating, and it’s only growing more intense by the hour.”
