Global emissions have to decline
​Immediately
​ for 2°C and 1.5°C (now too late)

IPCC Chair COP26, (IPCC AR6 WG3)​

Global disastrous fixed 1.5°C 2030 or soon after and 2°C by 2050
​“In all mitigation scenarios, crossing the 1.5°C threshold lies
​in the early 2030s” ​2°C is crossed by 2050 (IPCC AR6 WG1 Ch.4-555)

​Climate Emergency 
Record Global warming 2023 is put at 1.45°C by WMO 
​Highest in 125,000 yrs and by a record increase

On Current policies Warming will be 3.2°C this century (IPCC AR6)
​Higher after 2100

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 2022 6th Assessment (AR6) has global emissions declining 2020-2025(C1) by immediate action for 2°C and 1.5°C

State of the Climate in 2023, WMO March 2024: WMO sounded a Red 'Alert on climate change worldwide' Annual report on the state of the global climate, confirms 2023 was the hottest ever recorded for 174 years (by far) 
'Records were again broken, and in some cases smashed, for greenhouse gas levels, surface temperatures, ocean heat and acidification, sea level rise, Antarctic Sea ice cover, and glacier retreat'.
​​The report emphasised that 'warming is expected to continue—a change which is irreversible on scales of hundreds to thousands of years'.
