Central England Temperature with Climate Change Projections
9 December 2019
This is a graph that I have shown many, many times over the last few years. It is something I created to illustrate the scale of climate change, and how it will affect us in England.
IPCC Special Report 15 – Global warming of 1.5degC
16 October 2018
Prompted by calls from the Paris climate summit, the IPCC commissioned this report to look at the challenge of limiting climate change to 1.5 degC compared with 2 degC. The consequences for the world of just that half-a-degree difference are stark. And it is a real call to arms for the global race to zero carbon emissions.
