Climate Panel To Discuss Future Of Fossil Fuels

BERLIN (April 5, 2014) The United Nations-sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has reached a conclusion and will next tackle the question of how to accomplish improvements in the man-made portion of global warming.

The panel meets next week in Berlin to chart ways in which the world can curb the greenhouse gas emissions that scientists say are overheating the planet and to try to estimate the cost.

In the third report of a landmark climate assessment, the IPCC is expected to say that to keep warming in check, the world needs a major shift in investments from fossil fuels, the principal source of man-made carbon emissions, to renewable energy.

That message is likely to face opposition from the fossil fuel industry and countries that depend on it.
