Earth Day: Here are 5 ways we can scale up climate solutions, according to IPCC

On April 22, the world will be marking Earth Day, a global day of environmental activism to bring about policy changes, mobilize funding and transform human behaviour to fight the climate crisis. Earth Day 2023 comes as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) latest report has reinforced we are still way off-track when it comes to redressing the impacts of global warming<.

Despite all mitigation efforts, Earth’s climate continues to get warmer, and is likely to reach 1.5°C anytime between 2030 and 2035, the IPCC warns. To stop it from rising above this limit, greenhouse gas and CO2 emissions must be reduced by at least 43% by 2030 and at least 60% by 2035 (compared to 2019 levels).

UN Secretary-General António Guterres described the report as “a clarion call to massively fast-track climate efforts” but also as “a how-to guide to defuse the climate time-bomb”.
