Climate crisis: Earth already close to exceeding temperatures set out in Paris Agreement

“This report shows that whilst many aspects of our lives have been disrupted in 2020, climate change has continued unabated.”

António Guterres, Secretary-General of the UN, added: “Record heat, ice loss, wildfires, floods and droughts continue to worsen, affecting communities, nations and economies around the world.

“Furthermore, due to the amount of greenhouse gases emitted in the past century, the planet is already locked into future significant heating.

“This report stresses that short-term lockdowns are no substitute for the sustained climate action that is needed to enable us to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.”
