Diplomats in Poland are working hard and steadily on the details on the rulebook which would help to finalize the design of the landmark Paris Agreement. Well, they need to reach to a conclusion fast; as scientists have indicated that the situation of global warming is going to get worse.
As per new essay from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a cautious look on the climatic science has been given. Following 2015 Paris Agreement, the IPCC was asked to make a special report which would take a look at the advantage of stopping the global warming at 1.5 degrees centigrade above pre-industrial levels. The report which was published in October revealed that such kind of policy can be very helpful, juxtaposed with a 2 degree limit. It is crucial as it pertains centrally to the absolute goal of the Paris Agreement. While some preferred 2 degrees, some preferred 1.5 degrees.
The IPCC in their report stated that the world was on track and would pass the 1.5 degree limit by 2040 if the world doesn’t act quickly.
