The Paris Climate Accord was agreed by 196 states at a UN Convention near Paris in 2015 and ratified in 2016. The main aim of the agreement is to keep the increase in global average temperature below 2 degrees centigrade above the preindustiral level. The course will consider whether this is feasible and how it might be achieved. We will look at what's available today in the electrical, transport and industrial sectors, and where research and innovation will be required. We will not cover agriculture or the theory of climate change.
