World Is Locked into ~1.5°C Warming, Action is Needed Now
November 24 2014
New "Turn Down the Heat" report explores the risks worsening climate change poses to lives and livelihoods across three regions and highlights that globally, warming of close to 1.5°C above pre-industrial times is already locked into Earth’s atmospheric system by past and predicted greenhouse gas emissions. We can act now to deal with the impacts, which will particularly affect the poor, and transition to a low carbon future by putting a robust price on carbon, phase out harmful subsidies, accelerate renewable energy and energy efficiency, implement climate-smart agriculture and build low-carbon resilient cities.
