Humans have pushed the climate into ‘unprecedented’ territory, landmark U.N. report finds Researchers used machine learning to analyze more than 100,000 studies of weather events and found that four-fifths of the world’s land area has suffered impacts linked to global warming.These combined findings — which focused on events such as crop failures, floods and heat waves — allowed scientists to make a solid link betweenescalating extremes and human activities. They concluded that global warming has affected 80 percent of the world’s land area.“We have a huge evidence base now that documents how climate change is affecting our societies and our ecosystems,” dented’ territory, landmark U.N. report finds"

"Here in the nation's capital, policymakers are still debating the costs of moving away from fossil fuels.

While members of both parties back a nearly $1 trillion infrastructure bill that has passed the Senate, and would provide $7.5 billion to build out a national network of electric-vehicle charging stations and several other measures that would cut carbon emissions, the White House is struggling to muster enough support for a $3.5 trillion "Build Back Better" bill that would provide incentives for utilities that get an increasing share of their power from solar, wind and other carbon-free sources and penalize those that don't move swiftly enough.

According to a recent analysis by the Rhodium Group, an independent research firm, the larger spending bill would curb U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by as much as a gigaton but would probably get the country only halfway to its 2030 goals.

A September study in Nature found that 60 percent of Earth's oil and fossil methane gas and 90 percent of coal must remain in the ground for the world to have an even chance of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) a threshold that scientists say would spare humanity the most disastrous climate impacts.

Increasingly, groups are calling on Biden to restrict fossil fuel production outright.

On Wednesday, a coalition of more than 380 groups filed a legal petitiondemanding that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers stop issuing permits for new fossil fuel infrastructure projects. Two days later, hundreds of scientists submitted an open letter asking Biden to do the same.

"The reality of our situation is now so dire that only a rapid phase-out of fossil fuel extraction and combustion can fend off the worst consequences of the climate crisis," they wrote."
