Climate Change: How Do We Know?

See NASA's repository on climate change. What are the facts? What's the evidence? What is it caused by, and how will it change our planet?

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change, offers frequent scientific assessments on climate change, its implications and potential future risks.

Project Drawdown

What are the solutions we need to stop global warming? Project Drawdown analyzes and identifies the most viable global climate solutions, and shares these findings with the world.

Global warming of 1.5°C

There’s also this report from the IPCC which explains how we must act now to have any chance of keeping global warming to a maximum of 1.5°C. To get there, we must reach net-zero emissions by 2050. 

The Exponential Roadmap

The Exponential Roadmap highlights 36 scalable solutions that could help halve global emissions by 2030.

Reaching Zero Carbon Emissions: Mission Possible

Reaching net-zero carbon emissions will also require a system-wide change among industries that rely heavily on cement, steel, plastics, trucking, shipping and aviation – which together represent 30% of energy emissions today. The Energy Transitions Corporation examines an economically minded way forward.

Corporate Commitments to 1.5°C are Ramping Up

Business action is crucial to limiting global warming to 1.5°C, and despite the current economic uncertainty, companies are responding to the call for action. This blog from the Science Based Targets initiative highlights the urgency for companies to commit to 1.5°C ambition.
