Kirsten Zickfeld will present key findings from the recently published IPCC Special Report on the Global Warming of 1.5 degrees. She will describe the current warming relative to 1.5 degrees, the benefits of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees compared to 2 degrees and warming resulting from a business-as-usual trajectory, and the actions needed to achieve the 1.5 degree limit.
Zickfeld is an Associate Professor in the Geography Department at Simon Fraser University, which she joined in 2010. She holds a PhD in physics (2004) from the University of Potsdam in Germany. Her primary research interests are in the long-term effects of human activities on climate. Her current research explores the reversibility of human-induced climate change, carbon budgets consistent with climate targets and climate-carbon cycle feedbacks. She served as a Lead Author of the recently released IPCC Special Report of on Global Warming of 1.5 degrees and is a Lead Author of the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report.
Following her presentation, Zickfeld is joined by Daniel Horen Greenford, PhD candidate in the Matthews Climate Lab at Concordia University, and Eddy Perez, International Policy Analyst at Climate Action Network Canada.
