Emissions backtracking and climate Disasters
Our over zealous use of carbon and fossil fuels led the IPCC to give their most vociferous call yet to combat man made climate change. It is widely accepted that there is a link between climate change and extreme weather…wet, windy, hot, cold…we have it all in extremes. Yet we still ignore the risks and the warnings as rich countries make cuts to their emissions targets. Given the recent deaths in the Philippines caused by the worst typhoon ever seen, it’s not surprising developing countries are furious at the backtracking of the rich developed countries.
