Occurrences of temperatures mentioned in the IPCC assessment reports over time. Includes all working group
Although a significantly stronger global temperature increase is to be expected in the meantime, climate research is apparently still too much concerned with the so-called 2-degree target of international climate policy. A team of researchers from the Justus Liebig University Giessen (JLU), the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics in Potsdam and the University of Cambridge have expressed their fears that the actual topic is being missed in a recent article in the scientific journal "Earth's Future".
