Android : PS: At the moment we are, globally, on track for several degrees, and all too possibly 5°C of heating by the end of the century. climateactiontracker.org/global/tempera… But that's largely down to those of us in the Western world - we need to change our behaviour and our policies. And fast.

Android : Johan Larsson Glen Peters In my view hope remains for 2°C, just; but not 1.5°C unless NETs work at huge planetary scale. We also know what 2°C requires, & it starts with regs forcing those of us emitting the lions share of CO2 to rapidly cut our hi-energy use (& not hide behind structural lock-in, etc.).

Android : Natasha Reynolds Glen Peters Completely agree. Even the EU’s self-proclaimed climate progressive nations have delivered no meaningful cut in their CO2 emissions since 1990; but they have succeeded in creative accounting, offshoring industry, selling rhetoric & co-opting much of academia.

Android : As usual Glen Peters slices thro’ the optimistic rhetoric. I would add that no nation is even approaching doing what “they feasibly can” - & will continue to fail whilst we worship the God of mammon, ephemeral economics, & green-growth (i.e. decoupling)- the unholy trinity. twitter.com/peters_glen/st…
