We Could Breach 1.5 Degrees Celsius Threshold in Next 5 Years

We Could Breach the 1.5 Degrees Celsius Threshold in the Next 5 Years

Remember that earth-shattering climate report from a couple years ago that said we have to massively cut emissions by 2030 to ensure we don’t exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) threshold of global warming above pre-industrial temperatures? Well, there’s a chance we’ll cross that benchmark a lot sooner than we thought.
