On 8 October 2018, the IPCC will publish its long awaited report on limiting climate change to 1.5ºC. The report will underscore the increasing vulnerability of planetary systems to increasing temperatures. One recent study notes that limiting warming to 1.5ºC is at the high end of what we currently experience, while 2ºC would take us into a climate regime unparalleled in human history.

MANILA/GUANGZHOU, CHINA —
The most powerful tropical storm of the year to date left a swathe of possibly long-term damage after killing more than 60 people in the Philippines and another four in China before weakening on Monday.
In the Philippines, rescuers had found 11 bodies and are digging for dozens more in what the domestic media outlet Inquirer.net called a “massive mound of mud and debris” covering a chapel where the people had taken shelter Saturday as Typhoon Mangkhut blasted the northern end of Luzon Island.
After its passage as a very intense typhoon over Cagayan Province (northern Luzon, Philippines) on 14 September, tropical cyclone MANGKHUT made landfall again near Yangjiang City (southern Guangdong Province, west of Macau and Hong Kong, China) on 16 September in the morning (UTC), with maximum sustained winds of 140-160 km/h (typhoon).
