How Could Paris Climate Talks Ratchet Up To Success?

How could the UN climate talks in Paris next month ratchet up the national plans (INDCs) and succeed in limiting global warming? Drew Jones of Climate Interactive presents scenarios from the C-ROADS simulation and explores how far these contributions get us, and what more is needed to keep warming to within 2° Celsius (3.6°F) of temperature change above pre-industrial levels.

The C-ROADS simulation, which created the scenarios, is available for download along with all assumptions and equations at climateinteractive.org.
