Experts warn of climate change consequences

The world‘s top climate scientists gathered to present a massive report predicting dire consequences of global warming, in particular for poor nations and species diversity.

It warns that the brunt of the problems will fall squarely on to the world‘s poorest inhabitants, who are least to blame for the fossil-fuel pollution that drives global warming.
In February, the IPCC issued a first volume of its latest review with an assessment of the scientific evidence for global warming. It predicted temperatures would probably rise between 1.8 to 4.0 C (3.2-7.2 F) by century‘s end. It is to become one of the main contributions of future GMES services to monitor and help predict and fight the consequences on the global climate system, such as floods and fires caused by raised temperatures.
