"We are basically saying we can't build anything now that emits fossil fuels".
In October, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said the difference between 1.5C of warming and the earlier worldwide target of 2C was a significantly lower risk of drought, floods, heatwaves and poverty for hundreds of millions of people. "We are basically saying we can't build anything now that emits fossil fuels".
According to the study, which "used computer models to estimate by how much global temperatures would rise if a fossil fuel infrastructure phaseout began immediately" including an end to beef and dairy consumption, The Guardian reported, there would be a 66 percent chance of keeping the global temperature below 1.5C. If the phaseout does not begin until 2030, the chance is 33 per cent.

They would need to be replaced by zero-carbon alternatives such as electric cars, modern-style sailing vessels and renewable energy sources.
"Whether it's drilling a new gas well, keeping an old coal power station open, or even buying a diesel vehicle, the choices we make today will largely determine the climate pathways of tomorrow. The message of this new study is loud and clear: act now or see the last chance for a safer climate future ebb away".
Mark Maslin, professor of climatology at University College London, warned: "Each year we fail to cut global emissions will make it more unlikely that we can keep global warming below 1.5C". I think we are heading for 2°C.to 2.5°C", he said, but "if you don't have a goal, you are not going to get anywhere.
