Climate Change: Takeaway from the IPCC's Sixth Assessment Report
PK Khup Hangzo, Associate Fellow, VIF

In this episode of the VIF podcast, Ms Heena Samant, Research Assistant and Mr PK Hangzo, Associate Fellow at the Vivekananda International Foundation discuss the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) and what it means for India. The report found that human activity is changing the Earth’s climate in ways “unprecedented” in thousands or hundreds of thousands of years, with some of the changes now inevitable and "irreversible." It further observed that the window of opportunity for limiting global warming to a tolerable 1.5°C this century is closing fast and that only drastic cuts in greenhouse gas emissions this decade could help prevent the world from crossing that limit.
