On October 8, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a special report on global climate change. Experts reiterated an urgent need to prevent an increase in the average annual temperature of the atmosphere by one and a half to two degrees Celsius against the pre-industrial level, that is, since the end of the XIX century.
