Agreement to prevent global average temperatures from increasing to more than 2 degrees Celsius above the pre-Industrial Revolution temperature benchmark.
Some people think that we should be trying to keep warming below 1.5 degrees. But how much difference can half a degree really make, you’ll say?
What if Earth’s climate warmed up to 2 °C above that pre-Industrial benchmark overnight?
If the global average temperature rises by 1.5 degrees, the probability of an ice-free Arctic summer in any given year is about 3 percent.
Ice near the poles continues to melt at 2 degrees of warming, adding enough water into the oceans to cause sea levels to rise by 48 centimeters by the year 2100.
Rainfall, like the layer of peanut butter on a PB&J, is best when it’s evenly distributed. The frequency of extreme rainfall events at 1.5 is expected to have increased by 17 percent.
Droughts will grow to last 2 months on average – about as long as it took the Mayflower to sail to America.
Reduced crop production and other results of extreme weather patterns will contribute to an 8 percent drop in global GDP.
