Climate Agreements 2019

A study published in 2018 reports a threshold where temperatures could rise to 4 or 5 degrees above the pre-industrial level (ambiguous expression, continuity would be “4-5 °C”), thanks to self-concretizing feedbacks in the climate system, indicating that this threshold is below the 2 degree target set in the Paris Climate Agreement. Study author Katherine Richardson points out, “We find that, in its history, the Earth has never had a near-stable state about 2°C warmer than pre-industrial and we suggest that there is a considerable risk that the system itself, because of all these other processes, will want,” even if we stop emissions. This doesn`t just mean reducing emissions, but much more. [96] GCAS tried to send this clear and strong signal of support to San Francisco in 2018 to New York in 2019.
