52nd session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
I am honoured to address you today at the 52nd
session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) because the IPCC has been, without a doubt, an incredible, positive scientific force in laying out the scale and consequences of climate change and what we must to do lessen the threat it poses to humanity and the planet.
Everybody involved in the work of the last few years should be proud of how influential this body has been. So, let me congratulate you all for last year’s marathon in getting out the two special reports, on climate change and land and the ocean and cryosphere, and updating the methodology for greenhouse gas inventories. Your special reports have undoubtedly fueled societal climate change movements, notably among young people, and built momentum for the action we must take. I am also happy that the three Working Group Reports of the Sixth Assessment Report are on track.
