Can we limit global warming to 1.5 °C?
“We need to aggressively reduce carbon emissions as soon as possible, which is not impossible, but challenging. Therefore researchers must provide clear guidance to policy makers and practitioners about available options”, says Professor Luis Mundaca at Lund University in Sweden, who was a lead author on the IPCC Special Report on 1.5 ˚C degrees.
“Downsizing the energy system by tackling ever-rising demand, makes it more feasible to decarbonize the energy resource mix via renewables” says Luis Mundaca.
To this end, the researchers outline how carbon emissions can be reduced by using demand-side approaches within specific sectors.
