Online lecture series „1,5 °C Global Warming by 2030?“ [VIDEO RECORDS]

Forecasts predict that the earth will warm by 1.5°C in the next 15 years compared to the pre-industrial age. The 1.5°C warming was already the climate target in Paris in 2015, which was to be achieved by 2100.

However, the 1.5°C warming is also a temperature threshold at which processes are triggered that can no longer be reversed, so-called tipping points.

The open questions we have to face are:

  • What does accelerated global warming mean for us in the next ten years?
  • What changes will we face and how do we address them?
  • If we can’t stop global warming, how do we adapt?

Some time ago The Beuth University (Berlin) and the Klaipeda University (Lithuania) organised open lecture series “1,5 °C Global Warming by 2030?“ in order to create an awareness for the upcoming challenges that we have to face.

These lectures are open to watch now: http://beuthbox.beuth-hochschule.de/channel/60e325cf6b70560dc2b5f7bc
