The contribution of non-CO2 greenhouse gas mitigation to achieving long-term temperature goals (C2b)

In the latest (fifth) assessment from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) non-CO2 emissions accounted for 28% of total GHG emissions in 2010, when measured on the basis of their global warming potential (relative to CO2) over a 100-year timespan, a measure known as GWP100. The single largest source of these emissions is agriculture, with … Read more

Mitigation policy cards

A series of  policy cards providing up-to-date evidence for policy questions relating to climate change mitigation. Policy card 1: What is the scale and challenge of the energy system transition required to meet long-term climate goals? Achieving emissions consistent with a 50% chance of remaining below 2°C by 2100 will require large changes in the energy system over … Read more
