A simplified approach to show next 10 year action is determinative
Forecasting how global emissions (GtCO2/yr) shall perform to meet what agreed in Paris last December is difficult.
Yet, all pathways pass through today’s P1 [2015, 37] -and its inertial trajectory from P0 – and end at P5 [2050, 0], ( Art. 4.).
Besides, according to Carbon Tracker, a limited carbon budget of 900 tCO2e must keep the area underneath the curve constant and equal to that volume; to modelize all these variables BlacktoGreen launched a simplified calculus that finally has come to the model (based on d3.js environment) shown here.
Move “peaking” over the green-shadowed area* to realize action beyond 2025 will be useless (either CO2 shall be removed from the atmosphere or fossil fuels shall be replaced with clean energy in less than 5 years). Enjoy it.
