We must keep global temperature rises below 1.5°C.

According to the IPCC, limiting warming to 1.5°C will mean:

  • 420 million fewer people frequently exposed to extreme heat waves
  • 61 million less people in urban areas exposed to severe drought
  • Between 184 and 270 million fewer people exposed to water scarcity
  • Sea level rise 10cm lower than at 2 degrees of warming
  • Reduced risk of hitting natural tipping points that could send us into a spiral of run-away

It really is 1.5 to stay alive!
