THE 2-DEGREE IMPOSSIBILITY

CLIMATE ACCORDS AIM TO KEEP GLOBAL TEMPERATURES FROM RISING MORE THAN 2 DEGREES, BUT RESEARCH SHOWS IT’S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE SUCH A PRECISE OUTCOME.
BY ERIC SCHOENIGER

The Paris climate accord, adopted in 2015 and ratified by at least 168 nations, aims to cap global average temperature at 2 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels. To achieve that goal, governments will spend many billions of dollars on reducing emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. But what happens if they miss their targets? And is an increase of less than 2 degrees even the right goal?
