The Society released another climate science briefing paper on “Global Carbon Budgets”. How much CO2 can the world emit to avoid a global warming of 1.5°C or 2°C depends on the current rate of warming and the past emissions. The briefing paper discusses the concept of carbon budgets, how they are calculated and what uncertainties exist.
Caroline Coch, Climate Science Communications Specialist at the Society sits down with Prof Pierre Friedlingstein, Chair in Mathematical Modelling of the Climate System at the University of Exeter to discuss the paper.
