Paris Climate Agreement Beacon Of Hope

College students, climate modellers and negotiators, as well as members of the general public with a modest scientific background. Climate models that predict global warming use one of four numbered scenarios to describe greenhouse gases in the future atmosphere. The researchers describe these projections as representative concentration scenarios (CPRs) that affect the impact of greenhouse gases and other pollutants on the climate until 2100. RCP 4.5, one of the most optimistic avenues, estimates that man`s greenhouse gas emissions will soon depreciate and decrease after a few decades. The authors are convinced that if the world maintains emissions on RCP 4.5, we will almost certainly remain below two degrees of global warming. Chapter 2 describes our empirical model of the global climate and provides predictions of global warming found in the rest of the century using this model. We conclude that the objective of the Paris climate agreement is likely to be met if future greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions can be placed on the path known as CPR 4.5. Chapter 1 summarizes the Earth`s climate system and describes changes in global temperature, which have been driven primarily by natural variations in atmospheric CO2 on geological time scales. We describe global warming over the past 150 years and show that the increase in temperature is due to the increase in CO2 due to human activity. In December 2015, the world`s nations negotiated the Paris climate agreement, which aims to limit global warming to a maximum of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial temperatures. Scientists at the University of Maryland have developed an empirical model of the global climate through which they have comprehensively analyzed the Paris Agreement.

Chapter 3 examines both the unconditional (enterprise) and conditional commitments (based on financial support and/or technology transfers) of the Paris climate agreement. We show that global greenhouse gas emissions will remain below those of CPR 4.5 if unconditional and conditional commitments are met and if the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions needed to achieve the Paris commitments is extended until 2060.
