How does the IPCC Report relate to festivals?

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report (2014), looks at current greenhouse gas emissions, the levels they will need to fall to in future, and how this can be achieved. Among the key findings of the report are:

  • Efforts to reduce emissions need to take place across all sectors and all regions. Reductions in demand for energy (e.g. through implementing energy efficiency measures) can play a big part
  • Greenhouse gas emissions are still rising, and the rate of increase has itself been increasing
  • Staying under the 2 degree limit is possible but increasingly difficult
  • Many countries already have policies in place to reduce emissions, but much more needs to be done – investment in clean technology needs to be massively scaled-up
