Our partner ENR & DD magazine launches crowdfunding to finance the production of a special edition on climate change.
The founders of the quarterly EnR & DD magazine have set up crowdfunding to publish a special edition to present the real solutions to limit climate change. Their message is clear:
The CO2 resulting from the combustion of carbon-based energy sources is the main cause of global warming and we must act massively immediately, if we want to avoid a real disaster.
This call echoes the warning message of the 700 scientists who recently declared in a call to the government published in the daily Libération that global warming is the main risk facing humanity for centuries to come. It is a global phenomenon, measurable, well modeled. The main cause of global warming is carbon dioxide (CO2) injected into the atmosphere. The main source of carbon dioxide emissions is the combustion of carbon source energies.
The concentration of carbon dioxide already reached in the atmosphere leads to a temperature rise above 3.5°C around 2100. If we continue to cause the increase in carbon dioxide concentration - this is the current path - The temperature rise can reach more than 5°C. We do not know what the changes would be in this case.
The IPCC report, responding to an order from governments and published on October 8, 2018, bets on extracting excess CO2 after an increase in CO2 concentration to exceed 1.5°C.
Governments, which have not kept the commitments made at COP21, already insufficient to limit the rise in temperature to less than 2 °C, have asked the IPCC to describe the impacts of an average temperature rise of 1.5°C compared to the pre-industrial era and to indicate the corresponding trajectories for the limitation of greenhouse gas emissions. The governments' move towards a more ambitious target than they have already missed may seem paradoxical, but it is not so.
