Final section of the 6th IPCC report

On the 4th of April 2022, the IPCC published the last part of its 6th report on climate change.

A climate change mitigation section

In August 2021, the first section highlighted the responsibility of human activities in accelerating climate change; the second section focused on the effects and capacities of adapting to the upheavals that it is causing.

The third section "Mitigation of climate change" focuses on solutions to reduce the effects of greenhouse gases. Energy, transport, industry and agriculture are the sectors for which the IPCC is proposing solutions. The report stresses that the cost of implementing them to stay within the +2°C warming limit is lower than the costs of failing to meet this target.

Carbon neutrality must be achieved by 2050 to limit global warming to 1.5°C by using technologies that capture CO2 and by reducing the reliance on fossil fuels in favour of renewable energies.
