SCCS: IPCC global report on climate change is serious wake up call

Campaigners say a new UN report on the impacts of climate change underlines the urgent need and moral responsibility for Scotland to meet its greenhouse gas emissions targets.
Today scientists from the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change outlined a stark assessment of the impact global warming will have on the planet and on humans, especially those already living in poverty.
Stop Climate Chaos Scotland Chair Tom Ballantine said: “This report should be a wake up call for all of us. We need to take urgent action to tackle climate change now.
“Scotland must play its part. That can make for a better world where we protect millions from misery and chaos, and a better Scotland, where we have warmer homes, healthier transport options, and cleaner air.”
You can hear Tom's interview on BBC Radio Scotland's GMS here (at 1hr 8min 30s) and read the full SCCS press release.
The UN report, incl summaries, is here.
