UN Experts Issue Dire Warning about Climate Change

NRDC: “We’re running out of time, but not out of solutions”

WASHINGTON–(ENEWSPF)–April 14, 2014 — The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change yesterday 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.”

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is an international nonprofit environmental organization with more than 1.4 million members and online activists. Since 1970, our lawyers, scientists, and other environmental specialists have worked to protect the world’s natural resources, public health, and the environment. NRDC has offices in New York City, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Bozeman, MT, and Beijing. Visit us at www.nrdc.org and follow us on Twitter @NRDC.
