The Working Group I contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC AR6 WGI) unambiguously shows that “that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land.” “Many changes due to past and future greenhouse gas emissions are irreversible for centuries to millennia, especially changes in the ocean, ice sheets and global sea level”, continues the AR6, recommending to reach “at least net zero CO2 emissions, along with strong reductions in other greenhouse gas emissions. Strong, rapid and sustained reductions in CH4 emissions would also limit the warming effect resulting from declining aerosol pollution and would improve air quality.”
This paper, starting from IPCC AR6 WGI, expands to how its recommendations could affect us through to 2050/2070, leading, among other things, to building decarbonization.
