The latest science shows that the Arctic Ocean is losing sea ice up to 30 years ahead of IPCC predictions, and that at a global level, sea level rise is expected to reach more than double the IPCC's maximum estimate of 0.59m by the end of the century, putting vast coastal areas at risk.
In the report, the WWF calls on the EU to adopt an emission reduction target of at least 30% below 1990 levels by 2020, to be delivered within the boundaries of the EU rather than relying heavily on offsetting overseas. They also ask the EU to commit to providing substantial support and funding for developing countries, in order to help them tackle future climate change and adapt to those impacts that are already unavoidable.
