Greenhouse emissions have to be continuously reduced to meet Paris Agreement goals

In order to limit the amount of global warming by 2020 to only 1.5 degrees Celsius, countries under the Paris Agreement may have to strengthen their carbon reduction pledges, a new study suggests. Researchers assessed remaining carbon budgets that are compatible with limiting warming to 1.5 °C by using a simple carbon-climate model, key properties […]

Reducing ambiguity in the Paris Agreement can help better estimate its benefits

Estimates in greenhouse gas reductions on the terms of the Paris Agreement can be improved by 10%, if participating countries make a commitment to submit their climate plans every five years. Paris Agreement aims to limit global warming to below two degrees Celsius by 2030. However, the current result estimates vary by as much as […]

INFOGRAPHIC | New climate target could bring in six million tons of fish annually

If countries are able to meet the Paris Agreement global warming target of 1.5 degrees Celsius, potential fish catches could increase by six million metric tons per year. Researchers found that for every degree decrease in global warming, potential fish catches could yield an annual increase by more than three million metric tons. According to […]
