Indias climate change dilemma: Do more while United States shrugs off responsibility?

President Trump wants to know who ‘drew’ new report on climate change. Here’s what you need to know about the IPCC

Thanks to a poor winter and long-term drought, New Mexico's largest reservoir, Elephant Butte, is now at 3.2 percent capacity.

Speaking on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report released by the United Nations this Monday, which called for governments to make "unprecedented changes" by 2030 in order to reduce carbon emissions, Robinson said that Ireland needs to do more to address the issue.

According to the IPCC, if the planet undergoes a 2°C rise in temperature, more than 99% of the world's coral will be wiped out. It notes that the contributions of glaciers to sea level rise in the present century can not be distinguished statistically.

In places like the American Southwest, warming is already affecting snowpack, forest die-offs, water supplies and wildfire season.

"This change can happen in two ways: in our collected effect on the climate and biodiversity, and the runaway effect of powerful new technologies, such bio, cyber and artificial intelligence". Any additional emissions will require removing Carbon dioxide from the air.

As NM Political Report has reported numerous times, including last summer, the U.S. Southwest is warming more quickly than other places on the planet. Together, higher temperatures and precipitation changes will decrease soil moisture and increase drought. As the IPCC report shows, early and decisive action will not only reduce the risks of overshooting the Paris temperature targets, but also slow down the rates of change, making local adaptation easier to roll out.

The report has received a lukewarm response by Australia's center-right government.

Wendel Trio, director of CAN Europe, one of the signatories, said: "The sooner and the more we invest in the clean energy transition, the better for citizens and our economies".

In fact, you don't even need to stay up late or wake up early to see them in action, making them the ideal school-night viewing. But the good news is you can watch the meteors zip across the sky regardless of whether you spot the Draco stars or not.

The letter said that since the European Union budget funds programmes for energy, transport, agriculture, buildings, waste and worldwide cooperation, it has "great potential" to support action on climate change.

Greenhouse gas emissions have climbed 1.3% to their highest quarterly levels in eight years, the latest data reveals, something Ms Price says has been largely driven by increased volumes of LNG production.

Both Labor and the Greens attacked the Coalition government, signalling the likelihood that climate change will become a major issue at the next federal poll due by mid-2019. But it wasn't necessarily new.

Trump said he wanted to know more about who wrote the report. The carbon dioxide humans were injecting into the atmosphere would cause changes, they wrote, that could be "deleterious from the point of view of human beings".

However, the IPCC report's authors said the world would face severe consequences if the great bulk of fossil fuels including coal, oil and gas, weren't left in the ground. But they are not spread uniformly across the globe, and different parts of the world experience impacts differently.

All those initiatives and studies ended once Gov. Susana Martinez took office in January 2011.

The IPCC is the global body for assessing the science related to climate change.
