VIDEO: Mitigating climate disruption in time: A self-consistent approach for avoiding both near-term and long-term global warming

Dr Gabrielle Dreyfus and Durwood Zaelke of Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development (IGSD) present the concepts and findings discussed in the paper “Mitigating climate disruption in time: A self-consistent approach for avoiding both near-term and long-term global warming”. The case is made that preventing the worst of climate disruption has two aspects: 1) decarbonization, the process of eliminating fossil fuels and other sources of CO2; and 2) reduction in short-lived climate pollutant (SLCPs) such as methane, NOx, black carbon and hydrofluorocarbons. Watch and find out why both are important.
