In anticipation of next months release of the IPCC Special Report on global warming of 1.5°C we would like to draw your attention to a recent article published in The Guardian, World ‘nowhere near on track’ to avoid warming beyond 1.5C target.

The article highlights the improbable, if not the impossibility of the world limiting global warming to below 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. We would also like to note the contribution of Simon Fraser University researcher Kirsten Zickfeld who is a contributing author to the IPCC report, along with fellow Canadians, Gregory Flato of Environment and Climate Change Canada and James Ford from the Geography Department at McGill University.
