A week of historic mobilization of people from throughout the world calling for action to be taken on the climate crisis ended with a sobering bang. Warming oceans and global sea level rise has accelerated in recent years due to climate change. And if immediate action isn’t taken, the straits could be dire. That’s the conclusion of a report published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC, as it’s known, a collective body of climate scientists overseen by the United Nations. The title of the report is “The Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate.” 1,100 pages in length, 100 authors, 36 countries who have contributed to this report.
