Executive summary: A rise of the global mean temperature of 2°C or more above pre-industrial levels would mean a dramatic increase in damage to ecosystems and disruption to the climate system.Today, we are already committed to 1.2 or 1.3°C warming, even if all greenhouse emissions were stopped immediately.To keep global mean temperature below the 2°C level, we have a very short time window to act.Within no more than one to two decades, we have to change our energy system to meet this target.
