  • In a nearly 4,000-page report released on Monday, Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), states that evidence of extremes such as heatwaves, heavy precipitation, and droughts, has strengthened and that human influence has unequivocally warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land.
  • "This report is a blinking red warning light for society to act to decisively and immediately to decrease emissions," Pelle Boberg, who works on climate change issues at the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, tells Radio Sweden.

  • Boberg also describes how Sweden can specifically think about cutting emissions.
