In summer 2021, the latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was released. Consensus among based on the scientific evidence assessed therein that human activities and the associated greenhouse gas emissions are the ultimate cause of the ongoing global warming. In addition, the report signals that global temperature is likely cross the 1.5℃ threshold in the next few decades.
