The good and the bad in the latest climate report

The bad news:

* The world has already warmed by 1.1°C and warming is likely to exceed 1.5°C this century under current pledges

Fossil fuel use is a major driver of warming and emissions are still rising, albeit at a slower pace.

Public and private funds for fossil fuels are still larger than funds for climate adaptation and mitigation

Climate adaptation efforts are underfunded and fall far short of what is needed

* Some frontline communities and ecosystems are already reaching adaptive limits

The good news:

* Renewable energy sources are becoming increasingly cost-effective and enjoy broad public support

* Some impacts are now contained, but others can be reduced through deep, rapid and sustainable reductions in emissions

* The earlier emissions are reduced this decade, the greater the chance the world has of limiting warming to 1.5°C, or 2°C.

* Action is vital, urgent, but possible
