BERLIN (KLKN) — A climate change group is warning that the results of its next full report could be gloomier than expected.

According to the Associated Press, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a collection of hundreds of the world’s top scientists, releases three huge climate change reports every five to seven years.

The last report should be finished at the end of February. It will include information about the effects of climate change we are already seeing, the possibilities ahead and how it will affect our own lives.

“We are losing living spaces for species and for ourselves because with climate change parts of the planet would become uninhabitable,” said report co-chair Hans-Otto Poertner, a German biologist.

Poertner says there are “tipping points,” and many places on Earth are close to, if not above, these limits.

The panel emphasized that it was not trying to instill fear in younger generations. They address their reports to heads of government around the world.
