Seems that many people (including science funding bodies) still don’t get that if we want to reach a global warming target of 1.5°C, huge changes are needed right now. According to the UN, global carbon emissions reductions of around 55% are needed until 2030. That’s in nine years!
Turns out that many people have wildly unrealistic ideas about the effectiveness of their actions to limit carbon emissions. To make a dent in your carbon dioxide emissions do the following: get a new heating system, insulate your home properly, stop eating meat and stop flying if you can avoid it! Did I mention that this is serious?
