With the Paris Agreement, the world decided to pursue best efforts to limit warming to below 1.5C, partly because climate impacts around 2C are considered too risky and too high by many. This seminar will put a spotlight on the mitigation side, i.e. how much and how quickly would emissions need to be reduced to still have a chance of keeping or returning warming to below 1.5C relative to pre-industrial levels.
Joeri Rogelj will present the latest scientific literature on 1.5C emission scenarios, abatement costs, mitigation technologies, and carbon budgets. How does a roadmap towards a 1.5C future differ from one for 2C? How big is the task of negative emission technologies, like biomass and CCS?
Co-hosted by the Australian-German Climate and Energy College and the EU Centre on Shared Complex Challenges
