The 1.5ºC climatic target - are we on track?
In 2015, 195 countries met in Paris to find ways for a more sustainable future and a resilient Earth. They agreed on a 2°C warming (or less) target by the 2nd half of this century. Signing countries committed to CO2 emission targets. The IPCC 1.5°C report provides 4 pathways urging for a transformative change in consumption behavior and fossil fuel demands. Unfortunately, current policies and even “optimistic” projections show that warming can only be limited up to 3°C, then more and ambitious actions are needed.
