As of 2017 humans are estimated to have caused approximately 1.0°C of global warming above pre-industrial levels.
Sea levels have risen by about 20 cm (8 inches) since 1880 and are projected to rise another 30–122 cm (1 to 4 feet) by 2100.
To limit warming to 1.5C, global net CO2 emissions must drop by 45% between 2010 and 2030, and reach net zero around 2050.
Climate pledges under The Paris Agreement cover only one third of the emissions reductions needed to keep the world below 2°C.
Bold climate action could trigger at least US$26 trillion in economic benefits by 2030.
The energy sector alone will create around 18 million more jobs by 2030, focused specifically on sustainable energy.
