end of the global warming slowdown and prospects of limiting warming to 1.5C

Scientists from the Met Office presented their latest data on global temperatures – including evidence which suggests the ‘slowdown’ in global surface temperatures has come to an end, and that temperature rise has recently accelerated again.

At the same time, a new paper published in Nature Geoscience examines the carbon budget for 1.5C – in other words, how much more CO2 we can afford to release if we are to limit warming to the goal of the Paris Climate Agreement, taking into account recent emissions and temperatures.
