    Final call to save the world from 'climate catastrophe'

    By Matt McGrath

    BBC Environment correspondent, Incheon, South Korea.

    It's the final call, say scientists, the most extensive warning yet on the risks of rising global temperatures.

    Their dramatic report on keeping that rise under 1.5 degrees C states that the world is now completely off track, heading instead towards 3C.

    Keeping to the preferred target of 1.5C above pre-industrial levels will mean "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society".

    It will be hugely expensive - but the window of opportunity remains open.

    After three years of research and a week of haggling between scientists and government officials at a meeting in South Korea, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued a special report on the impact of global warming of 1.5C.

    With Trump and his Republicans stubbornly withdrawing America from this agreement, and as a result it is going to be hit hard and we will find it much more difficult to get the global warming impact down to 1.5C again.

    The deniers, including Donald Trump have been rubbishing the information from the climatologists that climate change is ramping up and very soon they will not be able to do it any more as the low-lying land in any of their countries gets flooded by the rising seas and oceans.

    You are using my precise words there Zathrus.

    I think that the Trump administration is now having serious second thoughts about this policy.

    As well he might, as he has made enough cockups during his first term of office.

    To do what needs to be done to stave off this catastrophe is going to need courage and a great lot of money to bee injected to clean up the world and the CO2 that is destroying our atmosphere.
