Paris-Agreement Statement

The Paris-Agreement commitments by countries around the world to reduce carbon emissions are not enough. "Even if all the country commitments from the Paris Agreement are met, the best interpretation of the latest data shows that by the end of the century the global climate is likely to be 3°C above pre-industrial levels. This is substantially higher than the Paris target to limit warming to less than 2°C, and would have profound impacts affecting billions of people throughout the world". The implications for global sea level rise in coming centuries are particularly dire.
