Climate Interactive’s Climate Scoreboard analysis, produced in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management (MIT Sloan), shows that the intended nationally determined contributions (INDCs) put forward in advance of the UN climate talks this December make a sizeable contribution towards curbing global emissions and limiting warming. However, the offers need to be paired with further action if warming is to be kept below the 2°C target, avoiding the worst impacts of catastrophic climate change. Please see the full news release
of their new analysis of the expected impact of the emissions pledges nations have made in the run up to Paris.
The climate scoreboard
is an embeddable widget that people can embed on their sites, blogs, etc. and will automatically update as analysis is revised when new pledges come in. The New York Times
and in Science Magazine Science Insider
(dated September 28, 2015) have pick up this story so far. Climate Interactive is also hosting an informational webinar on Wednesday, September 30th at 12 pm EDT. Please RSVP for the webinar here
