In October 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change announced that limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented change in all aspects of society. The length of the 1.5 Minute Climate Lectures represents 1.5°C — the maximum amount the average temperature can rise in order to avoid the worst consequences of global warming.
Professors and leaders from across the University will unite in a series of lectures to sound the alarm about the climate emergency, to call for large-scale climate action, and to share a vision of constructive and comprehensive response.
