United Nations, July 19 (RHC)-- Global experts have submitted a report to the United Nations on how the world’s top economies can help avoid climate disaster.
The study for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon details specific steps that countries can take to help keep warming below 2 degrees Celsius, the target level for staving off devastating global warming.
The Pathways to Deep Decarbonization Project is being billed as the most comprehensive of its kind to outline practical measures to counter climate change. Project member Jeffrey Sachs, director of Columbia University’s Earth Institute, said that if countries do not adapt, the world is on pace for a temperature hike of 4 degrees or higher.
The United Nations will hold a climate change summit in New York in September as part of negotiations for a global agreement by the end of next year.
