IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate: Summary for Policymakers
Publisher: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
The IPCC "Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate," approved on 24 September 2019 by the 195 IPCC member governments, provides new evidence for the benefits of limiting global warming to the lowest possible level – in line with the goal that governments set themselves in the 2015 Paris Agreement. Urgently reducing greenhouse gas emissions limits the scale of ocean and cryosphere changes.
