“One of the key messages that comes out very strongly from this report is that we are already seeing the consequences of 1°C of global warming through more extreme weather, rising sea levels and diminishing Arctic sea ice, among other changes,” said Panmao Zhai, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group I.
“Every extra bit of warming matters, especially since warming of 1.5ºC or higher increases the risk associated with long-lasting or irreversible changes, such as the loss of some ecosystems,” said Hans-Otto Pörtner, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group II.
350.org asked Canadians to deliver a copy of the IPCC Special Report to every member of parliament across Canada on Wednesday October 24, 2018. Members of CUSP and others delivered a copy to Member of Parliament for Thunder Bay - Superior North Patty Hajdu. Board members of Environment North were among the group.
