UN Experts Issue Dire Warning about Climate Change

NRDC: "We're running out of time, but not out of solutions"

WASHINGTON (April 13, 2014) -- The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change today issued its latest report with an urgent call to action.

The following is a statement by Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council:

“The IPCC is telling us in no uncertain terms that we are running out of time -- but not out of solutions -- if we are to avoid the worst effects of climate change. That requires decisive actions to curb carbon pollution -- and an all-out race to embrace renewable sources of energy. History is calling.”
