  • What is a “fair” contribution of the EU to the 2°C limit?

    40% emission reductions by 2030 is not enough This blog post has been written by Dr. Niklas Höhne: A greenhouse gas reduction target for the EU in 2030 would have to be in the order of 50% or more (with a large range) below 1990 to be compatible with the EU’s goal to limit global temperature increase to 2°C. Since 1996 the EU has repeatedly e...

  • We can still limit global warming to 2°C!

    This blog post has been written by Dr. Niklas Höhne: An increase in the global mean temperature of two degrees would already result in fatal consequences: The agricultural productivity would be heavily impaired, the sea level would rise by up to one metre in this century and dying coral reefs would...
