Título: A Co-ordinated effort / Travis ElsumAutor: Elsum, Travis
Notas: Sumario: Last year was a watershed in the climate change narrative the UK parliament declared a climate emergency, schoolchildren marched en masse and devastating wildfires raged across multiple countries. The enormity of the challenge we face, and the grave consequences of any failure to arrest it, sunk in. Global annual CO2 emissions need to halve by the end of this decade and then reach net-zero by 2050 in order to limit the increase in global average temperatures to 1.5°C. Conversely, though, emissions have increased by 4% since the Paris Agreement was struck in 2015 and are showing no sign of falling. For every year of delay the bar is raised, with deeper net negative emissions required in the future.Registros relacionados: En: The Actuary : the magazine of the Institute & Faculty of Actuaries. - London : Redactive Publishing, 2019-. - 01/01/2020 Número 1 - January/February 2020 , p. 18-19Materia / lugar / evento: Cambio climático Emisiones de CO2 Impacto ambiental Empresas de seguros Emisiones contaminantes Calentamiento global Protección del medio ambiente Transición energética Reino Unido Otras clasificaciones: 219
