Climate change is ‘ahead of schedule’

Climate change is ahead of schedule, but not yet beyond the ‘point of no return’, according to the Climate Safety report, out last week. The IPCC’s assessment of global climate change does not factor in recent research on feedback mechanisms, says the Public Interest Research Centre report. More up-to-date research shows that climate change is happening faster than previously believed. For example, Arctic experts predict a complete melting of summer ice by as early as 2011-2015, a full 80 years earlier than the IPCC concluded.

So what did the IPCC leave out? And how does the newer research change global targets?
