Thanks to a poor winter and long-term drought, New Mexico's largest reservoir, Elephant Butte, is now at 3.2 percent capacity.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued the report from Incheon, Republic of Korea, where for the past week, hundreds of scientists and government representatives have been poring over thousands of inputs to paint a picture of what could happen to the planet and its population with global warming of 1.5°C (or 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit). The consequences of are being felt in every corner of the world - an increase in extreme weather, the unprecedented rising of sea levels and the diminishing Arctic sea ice.
Trump-who thinks climate science is a hoax and has stacked his administration with former fossil fuel lobbyists-infamously made a decision to withdraw the US from the global Paris agreement to limit temperature rise.
The Earth's average temperature is increasing.
The biggest contribution to this so-called global warming are China and India and other nations that spew endless amounts of bad particles into the atmosphere, which because of prevailing winds affects us.
But the IPCC says that to have the best chance of preventing runaway climate change, global net anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions must decline by 45% from 2010 levels by 2030, reaching net zero around 2050.
Vietnam is one of the countries most affected by climate change. Together, higher temperatures and precipitation changes will decrease soil moisture and increase drought. It's also something that will be verifiable in the lifetimes of numerous scientists who contributed to it, he said.
"Even if we are successful to restrict global warming to 1.5°C, however, there will be widespread impacts of climate change across the globe, and Africa is particularly vulnerable", says Engelbrecht.
Trump says Fed 'out of control' but keeps Powell
On Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbled 2.1 percent - or 546 points, after having sunk 831 points on Wednesday. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow sought to downplay Trump's comments about the Fed.
"When the federal government fails to act, we must look to states, cities, and the private sector to redouble their efforts", Udall added. Or else, technological solutions might be viewed as alternatives for reducing carbon emissions, which they are not.
The study details the effects of climate change of 1.5 degrees Celsius over pre-industrial levels.
Udall criticized the Trump administration's recent rollback of a rule meant to reduce pollution from methane, a greenhouse gas, calling it a "tragic failure of leadership".
Doing that would require an immediate, massive, coordinated transformation of the global economic system - especially the energy system - on a scale the world has never seen, the report authors said. But it wasn't necessarily new. On the other hand, climate change negotiations are hard without some target to work towards.
Students said the report makes them question their future. Meanwhile, we Americans continue to burn several tons of fossil fuels per capita each year.
Economist Cath Wallace, formerly also of Victoria, said "There is urgency but there are also huge rewards and opportunities from making vital investments in transition, switching production and lifestyle changes now".
In response to data showing that Australia's emissions levels are the highest since 2011, Ms Price said that this was a "slight increase" and insisted that the Government was on track with meeting internationally agreed upon emissions reduction targets. The use of fossil fuels (such as coal, oil and gas) needs to be radically reduced by 2030: coal by 67%, oil by 50% and gas by 33%.
Because it is the first time economists have provided the practical and evidence based trigger to take action on climate change.
The Minister for Energy and Clean Growth, Claire Perry, was reported to have told European Union environment ministers that she would make the request to the Committee on Climate Change on Monday, asking them to review the country's 2050 emissions targets to ensure that they were in line with keeping the rise in global temperature to 1.5ºC. Catastrophic global warming can not be avoided. Martinez has not convened the state's Drought Task Force since 2015, and drought planning links on the governor's website include a 2006 New Mexico Drought Plan and 2008 recommendations from the task force, two documents posted before Martinez was elected governor.
