Last call to act from last IPCC’S report
The clock is ticking, and we're running out of time to address the climate crisis. The Doomsday Clock moved 90 seconds closer to midnight in 2023.
Their latest report, released on March 20th, provides clear evidence that climate change is a real and immediate threat to our planet. With half the global population facing water shortages and 3 billion people living in highly-dangerous areas, the situation is dire.
The report calls for a two-pronged approach: a gradual adaptation to the changing climate and a reduction of greenhouse emissions by 2030. Governments must invest in clean energy and technologies, reduce carbon emissions in electrification, and increase the use of public services. But these measures must be coupled with
education and budget allocation to ensure that the population is equipped to drive change.
The IPCC's report highlights that extreme weather phenomena are multiplying, perpetuating threats such as food and water insecurity, and increasing the risks for the health of humans and ecosystems. It is more likely than not that the 1.5°C warming threshold will be reached, setting the necessity to reduce emissions to zero before 2040, anticipating the timing established by the Paris Agreement.
LP – I think films are the most powerful weapon in the world for social change. And if you can harness that power to not just entertain people, but to get them to change behavior, I think that's the most powerful mission we can take on. Or at least one that I’d like to dedicate the time I have left on the planet to. The films we make do inspire people to make a change.
To avoid catastrophe, we must act now. Protecting the oceans and at least 30-50% of the Earth's surface, reevaluating urban areas, and empowering communities to become agents of change are crucial steps in securing a sustainable future. Climate, ecosystems, and communities are trapped in a tunnel where the light is getting weaker and weaker. But with immediate and decisive action, we can still make a difference.
