Australian government backs coal despite 'global catastrophe' climate warning

According to a United Nations scientific panel on climate change, if world leaders, corporations and citizens don't unite and radically transform their behaviors regarding our planet, doomsday will be on our doorstep.

The IPCC report warned that "unprecedented" changes would be required to limit the Earth's temperature rise to less than 1.5 °C, and predicted catastrophic species loss, as well as extreme weather if this target was exceeded.

Earlier this week, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a dire warning about climate change: unless governments of the world coordinate to implement multiple long-term changes, we risk overshooting the 2°C warming scenario that countries strived to target in the Paris Agreement. Florida is a state that is expected to be heavily affected by rising sea levels expected with global warming.

"And of course we know how important coking coal is for our exports in terms of the manufacturing of steel".

Outside the White House Tuesday night, Trump reassured Americans that there's nothing to worry about when it comes to climate change. More recently, he claimed that low temperatures disprove climate change.

As well, around the Mediterranean, freshwater availability will drop nearly twice as much at 2 C compared to 1.5 C warming - down 17 per cent versus nine per cent, according to the report.

"This includes increasing the level of support to developing countries to enable them to develop and lift their people out of poverty without going down a traditional, unsustainable development pathway". "The sooner they move, the better off we'll all be", she said. Carbon Capture and Storage has not yet been proven to be an economic solution-without a price penalizing carbon emissions, adoption of CCS techniques are prohibitively expensive.

Assessing the mental health reports of people affected by Hurricane Katrina to reports from comparable areas that hadn't experienced such a natural disaster found that exposure to tropical cyclones was also linked to worsened mental health.

According the the IPCC, the human carbon footprint must fall by at least 45 percent by 2030 in order for the planet to maintain the 1.5C temperature rise and reach "net-zero" by mid-century.

The 1.5 report and its SPM were finally commissioned by governments following the 2015 global climate talks in Paris. The report also notes that "any remaining emissions would need to be balanced by removing Carbon dioxide from the air". Australia's pledge is to cut 2005-level emissions 26-28 per cent by 2030, a target environmental groups such as the Climate Action Tracker describe as "insufficient".

While we might be frogs in climate change's pot, there is still time to turn the burner down. The world is filled with climate-change hypocrites who want America to pay all the costs and make all the sacrifices.

Under former Gov. Bill Richardson, the state of New Mexico undertook some climate initiatives, trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from industries and studying how the impacts of warming would affect resources and its communities.

Canadian investigative researcher and author, Donna Laframboise, revealed in her 2011 book "The Delinquent Teenager..." that the IPCC reports were unduly influenced by ENGOs Greenpeace and WWF.

The Labor party has capitalised on the IPCC report and used it to demonstrate the their view that the Coalition isn't unified on its' approach to climate change and that more conservative elements of the party are undermining the Government's ability to put forward sensible policy in regards to emissions reduction.
