ABSTRACT
The article discusses the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which focuses on the impact of fossil fuels on climate change rather than the damage of greenhouse gas emissions from livestock on the environment. Topics include the need to roll-out carbon capture and carbon storage technology to reduce the use of fossil fuels, the role of humanity on climate change, and the statement of United Nations (UN) secretary general Ban Ki-moon.
