Climate Change Conference Warsaw 2013

Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome the sea level

The 19th UN Conference on Climate Change opened on November 11 in Warsaw seeking to lay the foundations for a much-anticipated agreement 2015 on limiting greenhouse gases.

The international community has set a goal of limiting global warming to 2 degrees celcius compared to pre-industrial era. If nothing is done, temperatures could rise by nearly 5 degrees celcius by the end of the century, according to a statement released in late September by the Intergovernmental panel of experts on climate change (IPCC).
