This year has seen major developments in climate science that are crucially important for green business. Scientists have learned that global warming is accelerating with a substantial likelihood that it will reach the crucial 1.5C above the pre-industrial baseline temperature at some time between 2025 and 2030. The implications for people and businesses are dramatic and call for evidence-based policy decisions of breath-taking scope within the very near future. As of today, one thing is clear: the world will change dramatically as a result of destructive climate and weather events during the next decade, likely social unrest, and the choices governments will have to make to survive these events.
