Sea levels will rise 20 cm more by 2300 for each 5-year delay in peak emissions

Ensuring that global CO2 emissions peak as soon as possible is crucial for limiting sea-level rises, even if global warming is limited to well below 2°C. A new study involving IIASA research has now estimated how much sea levels will rise as a result of peak emission delays.  More
