According to that report, the world is heading towards unprecedented changes due to greenhouse gas emissions. These threats to humans and nature can still be avoided, the scientists wrote in their report, but then “those emissions must be reduced immediately, intensively and resolutely.” Countries have promised to reduce their emissions, but even if those promises are kept, the Earth’s temperature will rise by 2.7 degrees. Nature’s editors find it not surprising that scientists expect this value to be exceeded, too. After all, many have witnessed how little progress has been made in recent decades.
