IPCC publishes the 6th Assessment Report of its WG2

The report repeats the warnings the scientific community has been expressing for years. Global warming, reaching 1.5°C in the near-term, is expected to cause unavoidable increases in multiple climate hazards and present multiple risks to both ecosystems and humans. The magnitude and rate of climate change and associated risks depend strongly on near-term mitigation and adaptation actions, and projected adverse impacts and related losses and damages escalate with every increment of global warming. Almut was Lead Author in Chapter 2 of the report on Terrestrial and Freshwater Ecosystems.
