A financial comparison of climate change impacts at 1.5C and 2C

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog

An article caught my eye recently: Scientists compare climate change impacts at 1.5C and 2C by Carbon Brief. We have some insight into the interconnectedness of extreme weather events and climate change, so we decided to take a look at the effect a 1.5°C at 2°C world might have on the expected financial loss and damage arising from extreme weather […]
