»Beim Ausstieg aus der fossilen Infrastruktur kann das 1,5-Grad-Ziel noch erreicht werden«

Studie in Nature Communications, 15.1.2019 (engl. Originalfassung)

The study shows that if carbon-intensive infrastructure is phased out at the end of its design lifetime from the end of 2018, there is a 64% chance that peak global mean temperature rise remains below 1.5 °C. Delaying mitigation until 2030 considerably reduces the likelihood that 1.5 °C would be attainable even if the rate of fossil fuel retirement was accelerated. Although the challenges laid out by the Paris Agreement are daunting, we indicate 1.5 °C remains possible and is attainable with ambitious and immediate emission reduction across all sectors.
