The report analyzes the 184 climate pledges made under the Paris Agreement. It benchmarks the emission reduction commitments to be implemented by 2030 to the 50 percent emissions reductions required to stay below 1.5ºC below pre-industrial times in the next decade, as concluded by climate scientists.
Of the 184 climate pledges, 36 were deemed sufficient (20 percent), 12 partially sufficient (6 percent), 8 partially insufficient (4 percent) and 128 insufficient (70 percent). Read more here.
Was the Paris Conference on climate change successful? Why has it been so difficult to take climate action? Are the current pledges by countries adequate to tackle climate change? Why has the public misunderstood the urgency of climate change? When could the 2ºC target be reached?
We synthesized and explained the conclusions from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other key climate reports to the answers these and other questions in a simple way. Read more here.
Economic losses from human-induced climate change and health damages caused by fossil fuel use are already impacting the U.S. economy with $240 billion a year. Based on the assessment of three decades, a projection for the next has next was estimated. Read more here.

Climate change is happening now. It is already impacting our lives. Every day. Everywhere.
Acting on Climate Together explains climate change in a simple way for everyone, everywhere, to understand and do something about it! See the outline of our new project and learn more here.
The conclusions from the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5° Degrees took many by surprise.
The best climate science needs to be effectively communicated to trigger climate action.
Here are its key messages explained in a simple way.
Everyone takes decisions every day based on information. Even the smartest people may disregard information they don’t understand, neglecting action.
Climate change is the single biggest threat to our way of life, our health, our development, our economies. Action to address it cannot continue to be delayed and neglected just because information on climate change is difficult to understand, misreported and usually questioned.
That is why we work with top climate scientists to promote and mobilize climate action by analyzing, producing and disseminating accessible information on climate change. Lean more here.
Climate action can only be accelerated through public participation and engagement. Each and every one of us has a role a play. You can help by:
• Spreading the message: share our work with others
• Taking climate action
• Supporting our work
