On 2 December the article 'Recalibrating climate prospects' is released in connection to the opening of the UN Climate Change Conference COP 25, 2 – 13 December 2019, in Madrid.

Professor Luis Mundaca at the IIIEE has co-written the article together with IPCC (The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) colleagues as a call for a more sober discourse around climate change prospects, following an extensive reassessment of climate change’s progress and its mitigation.

The authors argue that climate change models have understated potential warming’s speed and runaway potential, while the models that relate climate science to consequences, choices and policies have understated the scope for practical mitigation against it. Policymakers are becoming aware of the former bias but seldom perceive the latter.

Their study is published today in the IOP Publishing journal Environmental Research Letters, view the article here
