The Roadmap to Climate Stabilization

The 50% rise in global temperatures over the past three years (from +0.8°C to +1.2°C over the 1750 pre-industrial baseline) has caused major irreversible structural impacts and shocked the fundamental earth’s support ecosystems. The weight of the evidence suggests that the much-feared climate tipping point has now been crossed at much lower temperatures than the +2.0°C temperature target of COP 21. The latest consensus climate mitigation options presented in the IPCC 5th assessment offer the most effective, up-to-date technical routes to climate stabilization.
