What are the benefits of reducing global CO2 emissions to net-zero by 2050?
New Climate Science Briefing Paper in Weather Journal
Our latest Climate Science Briefing Paper has recently been published in Weather. The topic of this paper is the benefits of reducing global CO2 emissions to net-zero by 2050.
Benefits considered include achieving a healthier population, reducing the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events such as heatwaves, heavy rainfall and droughts, and reducing the number of people exposed to sea-level related risks.
This paper is part of a series of Climate Science Briefing Papers produced by the Royal Meteorological Society’s Science Engagement Committee to clearly and concisely explain the science behind our changing climate.
