Prof. Jim Skea, the newly elected head of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stressed that global temperatures increasing by more than 1.5 degrees Celsius doesn’t pose an “existential threat to humanity.”
“It will, however, be a more dangerous world,” Mr. Skea said, noting that social tensions may rise but “we will not die out.”
He did say that “man-made” climate change exists and that we can no longer deny it.
Climate change is highly controversial. Many experts have repeatedly raised concerns about the impending climate doomsday regularly cited by environmental activists, including more than 1,100 scientists and professionals who signed a statement in 2022 declaring that “there is no climate emergency.”
Some of those experts, including Nobel prize-winning physicist John F. Clauser, have allegedly been censored because of their scepticism over climate change.
