Achieving emissions consistent with a 50% chance of remaining below 2°C by 2100 will require large changes in the energy system over the 21st century, including increased use of renewables and significant retirement of fossil fuel generation capacity. Delaying global coordinated mitigation action towards the 2°C […]

An updated view of tipping points and the relevance for long-term climate goals (A5)

While some aspects of climate change can be viewed as becoming proportionately larger with increasing forcings, other aspects may feature more complex, nonlinear behaviour. This can include abrupt and/or irreversible change, which may be associated with key thresholds. Such behaviour must be considered differently in assessments of […]
