Balancing fairness and ambition

A headline result from the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C was that global CO2 emissions need to decline by 45% from 2010 levels by 2030. Is this possible while still retaining fairness in mitigation?

Beyond Carbon Budgets

COMMENTARY: Carbon budgets have come to dominate the climate policy discourse, but have they served their purpose? Is it time to move beyond carbon budgets?

Stylised pathways to “well below 2°C”

COMMENTARY: Some people love negative emissions, others hate them. Some people think 1.5°C is impossible, others think it is a matter of political will. I think stylised figures are a great way to explain the challenges.

Fire ting du skal se etter når du ser på utslippsgrafer under fotball-VM

CICERO-forsker Glen Peters har startet emneknaggen #CO2worldcup på twitter. Så langt igjennom VM har han twitret én figur per kamp som viser utviklingen av utslipp per person i de landene som spiller.

Global collective effort

We have a big challenge ahead of us if we are to hold global warming to under 2°C. This is largely because we have already used up most of our collective 'carbon budget'.
