The Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, Climate Futures Initiative and SFU’s Faculty of Environment are pleased to invite you to the last talk of the Climate Futures Series: The SCIENCE, IMPACTS and SOLUTIONS to limit global temperature increase to 1.5 degrees.
This talk will focus on the approach used by the scientific community to assess literature relevant to the question of what is dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system: the IPCC's so-called “reasons for concern”, including what they are, how they evolved, and what the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 degrees says, particularly for the selected human and natural systems. The presentation will also explore the benefits of keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees compared with 2 degrees.
