Better engineering, more focus on the whole system of humanity.
New research just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences says that if we stay on a current, high-emissions pathway and do not achieve the promised cuts in the #Paris2015 agreement we could hit 2 degrees Celsius by 2040 or so. For the planet’s sea level, this would mean over a half-foot rise averaged around the globe, in comparison with average sea levels from 1986 to 2005. The sea-level increase, however, would be far worse in certain places, such as the U.S. East Coast, where it could be over a foot. #SeaLevelRise
