New paper in Nature by Climate Action Tracker authors

22nd April 2010

"Copenhagen Accord pledges are paltry" titles an article in the journal "Nature" by Climate Action Tracker authors. They find that the current national emissions reduction pledges accompanying the Copenhagen Accord will not limit global warming to two degrees Celsius. In fact, they imply a global mean temperature increase of more than three degrees Celsius this century. This joint effort of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Climate Analytics and Ecofys can be found at Nature online.
