warming is generally worse than we thought. Carbon emissions are higher than the IPCC projected, Arctic sea ice is
melting at a faster-than-expected clip, and observed and projected sea levels are increasing. At the same time,
advances in climate science have more definitively linked climate change to an increasing likelihood of many types
of extreme weather events. UQ: Warming is Anthropogenic

are increasing at rapid rates
