The 1.5-degree target is understood to mean the goal of limiting the man-made global temperature increase due to the greenhouse effect to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2100 from the level before the start of industrialization. Almost all the states of the world have signed a treaty with the Paris Convention, according to which they intend to make efforts to achieve the 1.5 degree target. Climate researchers doubt that we will reach this goal, we would already be at 2 degrees. There is a lack of political will. Fridays for Future are fighting to keep the contract.
What has to change to reach the goal? Researchers have developed scenarios that show ways. For example, the price of CO2 increases to 100€/ton. Renewable energies like wind power, solar energy are used instead of fossil fuels. We humans live well and in a climate-friendly way.
Which pictures do artists create on this topic? We are looking forward to your exciting submissions!
