"This week’s landmark report on the state of the climate paints a sobering
picture. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded that,
without deep and immediate cuts to greenhouse gas emissions, the world is very
likely headed for climate catastrophe.
In November, world leaders will gather in Glasgow for the latest round of
United Nations climate talks. It’s the most crucial round of climate
negotiations since those which led to the Paris Agreement in 2015.
The question is: will governments around the world now listen to the climate
science? Or will misinformation campaigns backed by vested interests continue
to delay action?
If we’re to avert a climate disaster, we must not underestimate the power of
climate misinformation campaigns to undermine the IPCC findings and ensure
governments continue to ignore the science."
