We only have a decade to avoid the worst consequences of climate change.
That's the warning the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) put out last year.

That transformation has already begun. The last few years saw record-breaking temperatures, catastrophic and bizarre storms, and unprecedented ice melt. That's all likely to get worse by 2030.
