New Research: ‘climate progressive’ nations fall far short of Paris-compliant pathways

A new paper by Professor Kevin Anderson and NRHU doctoral student Isak Stoddard reviews the mitigation plans of “climate progressive” nations, Sweden and the UK, and compares them with Paris-compliant pathways, and is now published in Climate Policy. The piece is written together with a colleague from Manchester, John Broderick.

Swedish press release from Uppsala University can be read here: 

Sveriges klimatmål långt ifrån tillräckliga för att klara Parisavtalet

And a longer news piece/interview here.

You can even read a slightly more polemic piece in the Ecologist which expands a bit on the results of the analysis and is available here: 

Beyond a climate of comfortable ignorance
