Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4°C Warmer World Must be Avoided

World Bank’s first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), providing a summary of the key impacts and challenges of a 4°C warmer world by the end of this century. The MOOC presents this analysis for the likely impacts of a 4-degree warming trajectory and stresses the need for decision makers and communities to take a firm look at their adaptation choices, while signaling the urgency for mitigation action. Participants will also be introduced to the risks of triggering non-linearity, and tipping elements like the disintegration of the West Antarctic ice sheet and large-scale Amazon dieback. This MOOC ends with a discussion on the main policy choices needed to prevent warming to be above 2°C.
