Earth on the verge of crossing critical climate thresholds, Stanford study finds

I had the chance to cover the story about a new Stanford study that found that even if we reach net zero emissions by 2100, global warming is on track to eclipse critical preventative goals set by the United Nations in the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015.


The study’s results put into question the hopes of the Paris Agreement to “[hold] the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, recognizing that this would significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change.”
