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.
