The Challenge of Long-Term Thinking
The *1.5 Minute Climate Lectures returned to campus on September 22 as part of Climate Week at Penn. Professors and leaders from across the University united 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 responses. The maximum amount the average temperature can rise in order to avoid the worst consequences of global warming is 1.5°C. We’re already past 1°C.
