  14. 14. IPCC contrasts the impacts of 1.5C and 2C warming • predicts a difference of 10 cm sea level rise and 10.4 million displaced people by 2100, • a difference of 190 million premature deaths and hundreds of millions of people forced into poverty by 2050. To limit warming to 1.5OC. • we must reduce CO2 emissions by at least 45% in the next 12 years compared to 2010 levels; • and achieve net zero CO2 production by 2050. • This is a tall order, requiring action on multiple fronts at all levels of society – from the local to the global. 1726/02/2019 GW1.5 main findings

  23. 23. 2626/02/2019 In the decade between 2001 and 2011, global military spending increased by an estimated 92 percent, according to Stockholm International Peace Research, although it fell by 1.9 percent in real terms in 2013 to $1,747 billion. At the same time, according to the draft of a new study from the International Peace Bureau (1), almost 10 gigatons of carbon dioxide equivalent has been released into the atmosphere. According to the Global Carbon Project, 2014 emissions are set to reach a record high. Could there be some connection between rising military expenditures and rising carbon emissions?
