"Earth is warming and the signs of climate change are everywhere. We’ve seen it
in the past few weeks as temperatures hit record highs around the world – both
in the Northern Hemisphere and the warm Australian winter.
Global warming is caused by humanity’s greenhouse gas emissions, which continue
at near-record pace. These emissions are predominantly generated by people in
the world’s wealthiest regions.
Our world-first analysis, published today, examines the experience of global
warming over the lifetimes of people around the world: young and old, rich and
poor. We sought to identify who has perceived warmer temperatures most keenly.
We found middle-aged people in equatorial regions have lived through the most
perceptible warming in their lifetimes. But many young people in lower-income
countries could experience unrecognisable changes in their local climate later
in life, unless the world rapidly tackles climate change."
