IPCC PRESS RELEASE, 31 March 2014

wg2cover“IPCC Report: A changing climate creates pervasive risks but opportunities exist for effective responses

Responses will face challenges with high warming of the climate

“We live in an era of man-made climate change,” said Vicente Barros, Co-Chair of Working Group II. “In many cases, we are not prepared for the climate-related risks that we already face. Investments in better preparation can pay dividends both for the present and for the future.”

Adaptation to reduce the risks from a changing climate is now starting to occur, but with a stronger focus on reacting to past events than on preparing for a changing future, according to Chris Field, Co-Chair of Working Group II.”
