30-Minute Webinar on the Latest Scientific Analysis of Copenhagen Accord Pledges Relative to Climate Goals

November 23 and 24, 2010

By Dr. Elizabeth Sawin, Climate Interactive

One week before COP-16 in Cancun, what is the state of the global deal? Are the pledges in the Copenhagen Accord consistent with the goal of limiting global temperature increase to 1.5 – 2.0 °C?

Dr. Elizabeth Sawin, co-Director of Climate Interactive, returned recently from the 4th in a series of scientific workshops convened by UNEP and the European Climate Foundation to assess the Copenhagen Accord Pledges in light of the goal of limiting global temperature increase to specific levels.

The assessment convened representatives of 25 different international scientific teams who have analyzed potential 2020 greenhouse gas emissions under the Copenhagen Accord and compared those emissions with the 2020 emissions levels found under scenarios that climate models show have a likely probability of limiting temperature increase to less than 1.5 -2.0° C by the end of the century. The assessment culminated in a report to be released November 23rd by UNEP Executive Director, Achim Steiner, and at simultaneous launch events in London and Washington D.C.

In this 30-minute briefing, timed to coincide with the launch of the report, Dr. Sawin will share the main findings of the assessment:

  • What the latest science suggests about the levels of emissions in 2020 that are consistent with limiting temperature increase to 1.5°C or 2.0°C
  • What emissions might be expected in 2020 under the Copenhagen Accord
  • What actions could help close the gap and achieve climate goals

Dr. Sawin will be offering the briefing at two times:

Tuesday November 23rd at 4:00 – 4:30 PM EST. To register goto: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/114885686

Wednesday, November 24th at 9:00 – 9:30 AM EST. To register goto:
