The Paris Climate Agreement is a commitment to “holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels,”  to avoid unacceptable risks to humanity.  To reach this goal, carbon emissions must peak by the year by 2020 at the latest – during the next term of Council.
