Minister Eamon Ryan along with MaREI researcher Hannah Daly were featured in a recent Journal Article entitled ‘‘A new set of solutions’: What measures can Ireland take to limit global warming this century?’.
The Article highlighted a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which found that “deep reductions” in carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are crucial to prevent the planet from warming by more than 1.5 or 2 degrees Celsius.
“IT’S STILL POSSIBLE to limit global warming to 1.5 or 2 degrees Celsius – that’s the message that emerged from a major UN report published on climate change this week.”
The highlights of this report include: Halving emissions in ten years, Agriculture, Transportation, New solutions, Safeguarding against climate risks and What the next steps are.
