Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

posted in: News | 0

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has released the sixth assessment of its Working Group I. The report addresses the most up-to-date physical understanding of the climate system and climate change, bringing together the latest advances in climate science, and combining multiple lines of evidence from historical data, observations, and¬† simulations. Although the Working Group’s findings are presented in a global context, ties to the Corsica watershed are evident. Increasingly severe weather patterns, rising average temperatures, impacts on crop production, carbon emissions and sequestration, rising sea levels, and increased flooding are global predictions that have also been experienced locally.
