The world’s leading climate change scientists warned governments to act on climate change today or face a catastrophic future. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report is seen as the final warning. It says that if governments fail to limit global warming to less than 2 degrees by 2050, the world will witness significantly more violent drought, floods and extreme heat.

And the Middle East is especially at risk. So are the UAE and other regional leaders doing their part?

Tanzeed Alam, Managing Director of Earth Matters Consultancy, joins host Naser Al Wasmi to break down the report and assess what needs to be done in this week's episode of Beyond the Headlines.

Scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change say that governments must act now, and that time is running out. We look to find out how the Middle East will change under global warming, and what steps we can take now.
