According to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), we have less than eight – EIGHT! – years remaining to cut global emissions in half by 2030. IPCC experts have warned humanity that emissions reductions are paramount if we are to avoid more than 1.5° of global warming, and the worst impacts of the climate crisis that would follow.
