The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is calling for international action to halt globally rising temperatures. A new IPCC report calls on countries to utilize renewable energy sources, which are becoming less expensive, and decrease dependence on fossil fuels. If global warming continues, there will be increases in catastrophic weather patterns and threats to global food supplies.
