I’m not surprised that UNDP put out an IPCC-inspired report emphasizing that business writ large is the key to a new economy. But the premise – that global business efforts could result in holding temps to 1.5C – might have been believable 25 years ago, certainly not now. Most climate scientists will tell you that holding to even 2C would be a miracle at this point. With the all-talk & little action trend secure worldwide (yes, there are exceptions but not enough) we are on track for at least 2.5C with the possibility of over 4C by 2050. Business leaders who pay attention to the science know this. So I’d say this report is a lot more misleading than helpful.
