For years, scientists and politicians have been saying that the climate battle will be won or lost in the next decade. That narrative was boosted by the IPCC, which contends global emissions must be halved by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050 to avoid climate catastrophe. Politicians moved quickly to incorporate the 2030 deadline into their speeches and advocates started using it in their fundraising pleas.
