GLRPPR Sector Resource: Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4 [Degree] C Warmer World Must Be Avoided

Title:
Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4 [Degree] C Warmer World Must Be Avoided

Abstract:
This report provides a snapshot of recent scientific literature and new analyses of likely impacts and risks that would be associated with a 4 [Degree] Celsius warming within this century. It is a rigorous attempt to outline a range of risks, focusing on developing countries and especially the poor. A 4 [Degree] C world would be one of unprecedented heat waves, severe drought, and major floods in many regions, with serious impacts on ecosystems and associated services. But with action, a 4[Degree] C world can be avoided and we can likely hold warming below 2 [Degree] C.
