1.5 Degree Climate Target: Dead or Alive?!

Posted on 21 December 2022 by Guest Author

This video includes conclusions of the creator climate scientist Dr. Adam Levy. It is presented to our readers as an informed perspective. Please see video description for references (if any).

Did the United Nations really declare that limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees is impossible? And if so, is this true? What does it mean for climate change if we overshoot this crucial target, and what do we have to do now if we have missed it? Is it time to give up?

  1. I saw that 'article'. Content aside, it was an ad for a twitter alternative. I posted as such. Was that removed? Actions like that define the quality and depth of the site, and such response would be most unfortunate.
