New IPCC report 4 April: Industry and its transition are important for the climate

KTH's research platform for Industrial Transformation comments

On 4 April 2022, IPCC published a new report on the climate. It is the sixth in a row since 1990 and the latest since 2014. Unfortunately, this is not good news. We risk moving towards global warming of 3.2°C by 2100 (without strengthening policies beyond those implemented at the end of 2020). If we do not want this to become a reality, comprehensive, revolutionary and structural changes are needed in all countries and sectors. A change is required - and quickly. This is common knowledge; why is it going so slowly?
