ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC's) third report released in April 2014 that reflects on efforts to combat climate change through emissions reductions. The IPCC reflected on need to stop greenhouse gas emissions rising to more than 50 gigatonnes in 2030, the report shows that the energy supply sector was responsible for 35 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in 2010 and IPCC mentions the need of international cooperation to tackle global climate change.
