Analysis: Why the IPCC 1.5°C report expanded the carbon budget

Greenhouse gas emissions from human activity have already raised global temperatures by around 1°C since pre-industrial times. This leaves a rapidly shrinking “carbon budget” to stay within the aspirational 1.5°C of the Paris Agreement on climate change — This budget is a simplified way to measure the additional emissions that can enter the atmosphere to …
