Most of the world's electricity can -- and must -- be produced from low-carbon sources by 2050, the IPCC states. BBC News reports, "The report says that reducing emissions is crucial if global warming is to be limited to 2 degrees Celsius -- a target acknowledged in 2009 as the threshold of dangerous climate change." read more
