UN slaat alarm over klimaatverandering

October 8, 2018 -- Het Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) van de VN waar-
schuwt dat temperaturen tussen 2030 en 2052 met 1,5 graden Celsius zullen stijgen als de opwarming van de aarde in het huidige tempo voortgaat.

Keeping the Earth’s temperature rise to only 1.5°C rather than the 2°C target agreed to at the Paris Agreement talks in 2015, would have “clear benefits to people and natural ecosystems,” the IPCC said on Monday in a statement announcing the release of its landmark report.

To contain warming at 1.5°C, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions would have to be cut by 45 percent by 2030 and come down to zero by 2050. Any additional emissions would require removing CO2 from the air.

The report summary said renewable energy would need to supply 70-85 percent of electricity by 2050 to stay within the 1.5°C limit, compared with about 25 percent now.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
