The complexities of climate change and its associated jargon can make it difficult to digest. TheCable’s climate quick facts will help to demystify these climate concepts through easy-to-understand and straight-to-the-point explanations.

Here are some to keep at the tip of your fingers:

  • The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) says a shift to a circular economy can reduce the volume of plastics entering oceans by over 80 percent by 2040.
  • UNEP added that the transition can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent.
  • According to the United Nations, doubling global renewable energy capacity by 2030 could save the world’s economy between $1.2 and $4.2 trillion each year, largely due to a massive reduction in costs from pollution.
  • Warming over land is larger and more than twice as high in the Arctic, says the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
  • According to the IPCC, while benefits for air quality would come quickly, it could take 20 to 30 years to see global temperatures stabilise.
