Recognizing that, “Rapid transformations occurring in the Arctic are affecting the entire Earth system, its climate and weather extremes through increased temperatures and the continuing loss of sea ice cover, glacier retreat and changing snow and permafrost conditions,” (ICARP-III) and that these transformations are the direct result of anthropogenic carbon emissions, and acknowledging the contradictions inherent in IASC’s science and some of IASC’s actions, the IASC Council has requested draft Terms of Reference for an IASC Action Group on Carbon Footprint for their consideration. The aim for this Action Group is to start work in fall 2020.
