Hello and welcome to our climate basics course "Climate targets and energy transition".

The link between rising greenhouse gas emissions and rising temperatures is scientifically proven and the result of human activity.

The Paris Climate Agreement sets a limit of 1.5°C or well below 2°C. How can we stay within this limit? How can we stop the Earth from heating up? In this course we give an overview of the possibilities for emission reduction by politics, business and society.

This course will provide you with an overview of the alternatives to fossil fuels and how a transition of the economy to such climate-friendly alternatives can succeed.

Let's get started!
