Last-ditch efforts to hold climate change to the most ambitious target set by governments will likely require using every available technique rather than picking and choosing the most attractive ones, climate scientists said Monday.The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, requested by governments, was issued ahead of a U.N. conference in December that will consider how to increase country ambitions to cut emissions and manage climate risks better.Current government commitments to curb climate change under the Paris pact, even if fully met, would still leave the world on track for about 3 degrees of warming, scientists said.To have a chance of meeting the 1.5 degrees goal, climate-changing emissions would have to plunge 45 percent by 2030 compared to 2010 levels, the report said.The scientists said the report was intended to guide more than just governments, however, and that action by everyone including individuals and businesses -- would be required to hold the line on climate change.
