"Tackling food loss and waste will require measures across the entire food chain, from storage, and transport, over food packaging and labelling to changes in legislation and business behaviour that promote zero-waste supply chains", said Fabrice de Clerck, director of science at EAT who funded the study.

The report takes a worldwide look at the growing impacts of climate change. "Coral reefs would decline by 70-90 percent with global warming of 1.5 degrees celsius, whereas virtually all (more than 99 percent) would be lost with 2 degrees celsius".

At the dialogue, experts also shared information on the newly-approved Special Report of the IPCC on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C and related global greenhouse gas emission.

Penn State climate scientist Michael E. Mann made sure (via ALL CAPS) that his Twitter followers could not miss the link between climate change and stronger hurricanes. "It was given to me", Trump said of the report. Even worse, Trump is aggressively trying to increase reliance on coal, which contributes proportionally more to global warming than other fossil fuels.

Besides, the country also has a large potential for energy saving of up to 7.0% relative to the business-as-usual, through to year 2035. "Adaptation limits may be reached in some places, but enhancing resilience will bring possibilities for an improved future for many, including moving us closer to achieving our Sustainable Development Goals".

The country had already ratified the landmark Paris Agreement 2015 and approved its own action plan to implement the agreement as well as update the Nationally Determined Contributions on greenhouse reduction goals to submit to the United Nations before the Climate Change Conference 25 next year.

"This change can happen in two ways: in our collected effect on the climate and biodiversity, and the runaway effect of powerful new technologies, such bio, cyber and artificial intelligence".

Thanh noted that in addition to the adoption of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, Vietnam has issued guidance for the implementation of the agreement focusing on the UN's Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

In an article on The Conversation, Matthew Adams, principal lecturer in psychology, argues that "collective action" is the most effective way of tackling global warming.

- The West Antarctic ice sheet might not kick into irreversible melting. And in 2017, President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the 2015 Paris Agreement, in which almost 200 countries committed to cutting emissions to keep global temperature rise below 2°C, with the larger goal of trying to keep warming to 1.5° above pre-Industrial levels. We've seen increases in precipitation over the last 50 years. On top of this, Trump's America wants to dump spending on health, public education, culture and poverty programs.

Dale Marshall, national program manager at Environmental Defence, said the ongoing political fight over carbon pricing and criticism of Liberal energy policies is scaring the government into being more timid about its climate plan, while the report shows being timid is not going to cut it. Nordhaus was recognised for his pathbreaking assessment of the economic impact of climate change, and his advancement for the governments to tax the carbon emissions. "Within a few generations he is burning the fossil fuels that slowly accumulated in the earth over the past 500 million years".

Canberra also insists it is on target to meet its commitments under the Paris agreement, which attempts to unite every nation under a single accord to tackle climate change for the first time ever.
