It's becoming apparent that we've already emitted way too much CO2 into the atmosphere.
A drastic increase in renewables, nuclear and other low-carbon energy sources is necessary to help us keep the global mean temperature increase below 1.5C.
We also need to take care of emissions from energy-intensive industries AND distributed emission sources (hospitals, households, transportation etc).
But here's the thing...
...achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 may not be any more sufficient to keep us below 1.5C or even 2C.
Because of the climate dynamics, we may get closer to 2.5C by 2100.
We need to ACT NOW.
