28 Oct Series: Turn Down the Heat
Via World Bank
The Turn Down the Heat reports, prepared for the Word Bank by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Climate Analytics, provide snapshots of the latest climate science. The three reports warn that without concerted action, temperatures are on pace to rise to 4°C above pre-industrial times by the end of this century. The first report (2012), looks at the risks of a world 4°C or even 2°C warmer. The second (2013) examines the impact on Africa, South Asia, and South East Asia. The third (2014), finds that about 1.5°C warming is already locked in and explores the impact on Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and North Africa, and Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
The Turn Down the Heat reports, prepared for the Word Bank by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, provide snapshots of the latest climate science and say we are on a path to a 4°C (7.2°F) warmer world by the end of this century.
