IPCC climate report: Profound changes are underway in Earth’s oceans and ice – a lead author explains what the warnings mean
Humans are unequivocally warming the planet, and that’s triggering rapid changes in the atmosphere, oceans and polar regions, and increasing extreme weather around the world, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns in a new report.
