Reaction to IPCC Climate Report

STOCKHOLM - Commenting on a landmark review of climate change science released today [1], Sarah-Jayne Clifton, Friends of the Earth International Climate Justice and Energy Coordinator said:

“The world’s scientists have spoken, affirming once again and now with absolute certainty that climate change caused by humans is happening and that it poses a severe and immediate threat to our future and that of the planet."

"Communities around the world are already being devastated by extreme weather.  It is untenable for our political leaders to continue their inaction."

"The interests of humanity must be prioritised above the profits of dirty energy corporations through an urgent and dramatic transformation of the world’s corporate-controlled, unsustainable energy system."
