打破化石燃料的桎梏

伯尔尼——摆脱化石燃料的桎梏从未有过更好的时机。破记录的全球气温、暴跌的化石燃料价格、可再生能源创记录的投资额度以及兑现气候承诺的全球压力都在缔造这一改变世界的转型过程中共同发挥着作用。

转型的紧迫性是毋庸置疑的。去年12月在巴黎签署的联合国气候协议再次确认了全球变暖的硬性上限是比前工业化水平高2℃,如果超过这一温度将为地球带来灾难性的后果。但巴黎气候协议同样包含了“继续努力”将全球变暖限制在1.5℃以内的承诺。从美国航空航天局公布的最新数据来看,达到这一下限应当是必须的选择。

新的数据证实,2015年是有记录以来最热的一年,并表明今年前两个月的全球气温将继续维持在破记录的高位。美国航空航天局认为,2月的全球气温比以1951-1980年数据为基准的历史均值高1.35摄氏度。
