Planet Has Just 5 Percent Chance to Reach Paris Goal - (The Guardian)

Planet Has Just 5 Percent Chance to Reach Paris Goal - (The Guardian) | Transitions | Scoop.it
There is only a 5 percent chance that the Earth will avoid warming by at least 2°C come the end of the century, according to new research that paints a sobering picture of the international effort to stem dangerous climate change. Global trends in the economy, emissions and population growth make it extremely unlikely that the planet will remain below the 2°C threshold set out in the Paris climate agreement in 2015, the study states.

Carbon Dioxide Passed Critical Threshold in 2015

Published: October 24th, 2016

Brian Kahn By Brian Kahn

On Monday, the World Meteorological Organization released another reminder of the planetary predicament we’re in: The earth’s atmosphere permanently passed the 400 parts per million (ppm) threshold last year.

It’s the first year in human history where carbon dioxide levels have reached the symbolic milestone for an entire year. But it certainly won’t be the last as humans continue to treat the atmosphere as a waste dump for carbon pollution.

Carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide all hit annual record highs in the atmosphere in 2015. It's the first year carbon dioxide reached an annual peak of 400 ppm.

You might have heard that the world reached the 400 ppm milestone permanently this September. And it did, according to data collected at Mauna Loa Observatory, which is considered the gold standard for carbon dioxide monitoring. But it’s not the only place in the world where scientists are monitoring carbon dioxide.

Le changement climatique est la menace qui pèse le plus sur l’économie mondiale en 2016 (Novethic / World Economic Forum)

Pour la première fois, le changement climatique arrive en tête des risques qui pèsent le plus sur l’économie mondiale, selon la 11e édition de l’enquête du Forum économique mondial (WEF), menée auprès de 750 experts en amont du forum de Davos qui se tiendra du 20 au 23 janvier.
Un échec dans l’atténuation et l’adaptation au changement climatique est ainsi susceptible d’avoir un impact bien plus important que la prolifération des armes de destruction massive, une crise de l’eau, des migrations massives ou encore un choc sévère sur les prix de l’énergie. Selon le WEF, le large éventail de risques liés au changement climatique – allant de l’environnement à la géopolitique – est sans précédent. "Le changement climatique entraîne des risques en termes de crises de l'eau, de pénuries alimentaires, de croissance économique limitée, de cohésion sociale plus faible et d’insécurité accrue", a déclaré Cecilia Reyes, directrice des risques à Zurich.

On est donc très loin de la baisse drastique des émissions indispensable pour atteindre les objectifs de l’accord de Paris. Afin de contenir le réchauffement sous 2 °C, il faudrait plafonner les rejets mondiaux à 42 Gt en 2030, calculent les experts. Et viser un maximum de 36 Gt pour conserver un espoir de rester sous la barre de 1,5 °C.

Going veggie would cut global food emissions by two thirds and save millions of lives – new study / (The Conversation) | Transitions | Scoop.it

"Dietary changes make a big difference to both people and planet. In our latest research, colleagues and I estimate that changes towards more plant-based diets in line with the WHO’s global dietary guidelines could avert 5m-8m deaths per year by 2050. This represents a 6-10% reduction in global mortality. Food-related greenhouse gas emissions would also be cut by more than two thirds. In all, these dietary changes would have a value to society of more than US$1 trillion – even as much as US$30 trillion. That’s up to a tenth of the likely global GDP in 2050. Our results are published in the journal PNAS."

We have reached the crucial tipping point where the renewable energy option not only makes sense environmentally and socially, but also economically. This is causing a dramatic shift towards renewable energy worldwide, with renewable power capacity accounting for more than half of capacity additions in the global power sector since 2011.
