The IPCC report focuses on climate change and the impact on ecosystems. If we want to limit human-induced global warming to 1.5°C we probably can. The IPCC report identifies various routes by which emissions cuts would limit warming to 1.5°C; each makes assumptions about future changes in, for example, economic strategy, population growth and the rate at which low carbon energy is adopted.
