A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today.
Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says.
Large-scale changes in energy systems are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar.
And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive.
The report was published in Berlin today after a week of line-by-line drafting and re-drafting.
The final version, written by 235 international scientists and economists, says that efforts so far have failed to stop spiralling emissions of greenhouse gases which have risen to unprecedented levels in the past decade....

We must act now before it is too late.
Then tax that solar and wind power. Then make it a rule that all power generated would come under the control of the “UN”.
“And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. “
Like it wouldn’t be anyway.
Been there, Done that, with millions of taxpayer money down the sh!thole.
Whaaaaatt?? I can’t hear you. Can you say it louder? hahah
The only way to stop global warming is to shut down 90% of government activities!!
UN scientist need to shut the hell up.
The world must kill all UN bureaucrats or face extermination in Agenda 21 death camps.
“...needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive.”
Please! Where and when have we heard that bleating before?!
Have these people never heard of The Boy Who Cried Wolf?
Well no, there's always nuclear winter.
What will happen to our climate when a million wind plants suck a terawatt of power out of the moving air and convert it eventually to low-level thermal waste?
Welcome to third world status (except for the elites, of course).
..........absolutely fraudulent claim to the core!
.........though 10 years away from industrial capability, the Navy has figured out how to convert sea water to fuel.
when on line, that sea water fuel will just about put the Saudi’s and fossil fuel out of business................as we know it (the oil industry) today anyway...........
needless to say, there will be a big fight over who is licensed to produce it and distribute it and who owns the patents. If Harry Reid is still in power, my bet will be that his son and the Chinese will.
I guess that might work except for all the huge fireballs hotter than the sun
How can I become a UN scientist? Sounds like the qualifications are minimal and an easy gig just spouting off nonsense.
UN HQ should be on Wind and Solar only to show us how it’s done . Give up those big cars and go Electric . Give up traveling by plane and go with Hot Air Balloons
