Managing Global Temperature Overshoot: the role of solar radiation modification

Managing Global Temperature Overshoot: the role of solar radiation modification

Janos Pasztor, Anne Saab
, -

The central goal of the Paris Agreement that came into force amidst great anticipation and hope in 2015 is to limit the increase in average global temperature to 1.5-2°C above the historical average. The latest reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) suggest that global temperature overshoot is more likely than not to occur, even in the most optimistic scenarios.

  • What are the risks involved with such overshoot?

  • Why is it important to manage those risks?

  • Can solar radiation modification be a solution?

Join us for our online conversation between Janos Pasztor, Executive Director of the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G), and Anne Saab, Co-director of the Executive Certificate in Environmental Governance, who will tackle those questions!
