In this presentation, I will discuss key findings from the latest IPCC climate report including key pathways to limit global warming. Over the past decade, average annual global greenhouse gas emissions were at their highest levels in human history. The 2022 IPCC climate report makes this clear: without immediate and deep emissions reductions , limiting global warming to 1.5°C will be beyond reach. The good news is that we have the knowledge and tools to limit global warming, and it is possible to at least halve emissions by 2030. I will discuss the transitions that are necessary across all sectors—energy, buildings, cities, transport—in order to realize a sustainable and livable future.
