My take-aways from one of the first formal gatherings of climate scientists and humanitarians in Geneva, in the wake of the @IPCC_CH report highlighting the human impacts of 2˚ of global warming. #StepUp2018 #SR15 #Talanoa4Ambition #ClimateRedi @UNFCCC 0/15
1/ Forget about coral reefs & polar bears. The difference between 1.5˚ and 2˚of warming is 60 million more people exposed to severe drought; millions more potentially exposed to flooding, 23% more of the world's population exposed to extreme heat. This stuff is real.
2/ For small-island states at risk of being wiped off the map, limiting warming to 1.5˚ was already "the ultimate compromise". "We knew that 1˚ would jeopardize our ability to live on these islands,” a Marshall Islands rep said. “Anything beyond 1.5 is simply uninhabitable.”

Measurement is a key challenge but what gets measured gets counted.

Not always easy to reconcile science’s need for precision and corporate need for scalability.

When it comes to soils, this is even more challenging. Soils are notoriously tricky.
Protecting biodiversity, enhancing fertility, and saving water - those are a few of the benefits that come with storing carbon in soils.

And these benefits can also be economic.

But we need new valuation systems, innovative markets, and some good ol’ ingenuity. #GCAS2018
