Climate math: What a 1.5-degree pathway would take
Decarbonizing global business at scale is achievable, but the math is daunting.
The current Mckinsey & Company’s flagship publication, Mckinsey Quarterly, has a special focus on Climate Change. This article asserts adapting to climate change is critical because, as a recent McKinsey Global Institute report shows, with further warming unavoidable over the next decade, the risk of physical hazards and nonlinear, socioeconomic jolts is rising.
