"One of the key messages that comes out very strongly from this report is that we are already seeing the consequences of the 1 degree Celsius rise in global warming through more extreme weather, rising sea levels and the diminishing Arctic sea ice, among other changes", said Panmao Zhai, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group I.

Speaking highly of the IPCC and Lee's contribution towards strengthening global climate change response, Deputy PM Dung said that the IPCC's recommendations have been turned into definitive actions to fight climate change in Vietnam.

For global environmental policies, it will be crucial to have U.S. on board.

McCormack said he recognizes the concerns laid out in the IPCC report.

Besides, the country also has a large potential for energy saving of up to 7.0% relative to the business-as-usual, through to year 2035.

He pointed out he hasn't seen anything that's going to replace coal in the near future, He also predicted coal will remain an important part of Australia's energy mix "for more than just 10 years". Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). In a new report, the IPCC said the world's temperatures will likely reach 1.5°C between 2030 and 2052 at the current rate of warming.

The landmark Paris Agreement adopted in December 2015 by 195 nations at the 21st Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), included the aim of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change by "holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels".

With clear benefits to the population and natural ecosystems worldwide, the aim of a more marginal heat increase will go hand-in-hand with ensuring a more sustainable and equitable society, he noted.

She emphasized that the high-level dialogue is a unique and strategic opportunity to discuss opportunities to increase ambition and expedite transformation to achieve the Paris Agreement objective and Vietnam's climate change targets, in order to keep the impacts of climate change within manageable levels. The world may only have 12 years left to act on climate change before a global catastrophe breaks out.

Allowing the global temperature to temporarily exceed or "overshoot" 1.5ºC would mean a greater reliance on techniques that remove Carbon dioxide from the air to return global temperatures to below 1.5°C by 2100. Failure to do so runs the risk of more heat waves and flood-causing storms and the chances of drought in some regions. The share of gas-fired power in air pollution will need to be cut to eight percent and coal to less than two percent.
