Helmholtz Horizons 2019

Presentation of Daniela Jacob: „Half a degree matters“

The Helmholtz Horizon Symposia take place annually and offer leading scientists of the Helmholtz Association the opportunity to present their research on the most important challenges and questions of our time.

Horizon 2019 was themed: "Climate Change - From Knowledge to Action".

Helmholtz Horizons writes on their website:
Extreme weather systems, rising sea levels, changes in ocean geo- and biochemistry, species extinction, poor air quality; the devastating impacts of climate change caused by increased levels of atmospheric CO2 are already being felt by ecosystems and societies across the planet. Now, rapid, coordinated and wide-scale action is urgently needed if complete global climate breakdown is to be avoided. But how do we move from knowledge to action?
At Helmholtz Horizons 2019 our scientists presented their innovative research and bold visions, stimulating exchange and debate to tackle the greatest challenge of our time.

Daniela Jacob gave a lecture entitled "Half a degree matters", presenting the results of the IPCC Special Report on 1.5 ° C Global Warming, and explaining why it is essential to limit global warming to 1.5 ° C.
