Climate change mitigation
Description

Yesterday the UN body, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Change, released its latest report on the pace of global warming — and it made for some grim reading.

It urged a "transformational shift" in the way we live if we are to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels, including an end to coal fired power in just 22 years.

But that's not all — everything would have to change, from agriculture and land use, to transport and the built environment.

What's the chances of that happening?

Featuring Professor Deo Prasad
