SLC meets the challenge of global warming mitigation to 1.5°C

During the COP21, the signatory countries asked the GIEC to study the possibility of limiting the increase of the Earth surface temperature to 1.5 rather than 2 degrees Celsius, with respect to the pre-industrial period, circa 1850. Associated with its international collaboration spin-off "Global Initiative for Saving Our Climate (GISOC)", SLC met the challenge by proposing the scenario presneted herunder. It is, in this particular case, the translation of the article displayed in the magazine "International Journal of Global Energy Issues", Int. J. Global Energy Issues, Vol. 40, Nos. 3/4, 2017.

The possibility of reaching the global warming objective of 1.5 degrees Celsius or below rests on the complementarity of a strong development of nuclear power and renewable energy sources as a total replacement for fossil fuels.
