Research into the influence of human activity on the climate system has been around for 120 years. At the end of the 1970s, climate researchers then issued the first clear warnings that have been proven in their basic statements. In the meantime, climate change has become a reality.
In 2015, the governments of the community of nations decided to limit the warming to a maximum of 2°C above the pre-industrial value, and not to exceed 1.5°C if possible. The intergovernmental Panel on Climate Chance (IPCC) was commissioned to define implementation strategies and to investigate how different the two climate goals are. The lecture tries to make the area of tension between scientific knowledge and political reality understandable and to show ways to act.
Georg Kaser is Professor of Climate and Cryosphere Research and currently Dean of the Faculty of Geo and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Innsbruck. As a glacier researcher, he first dealt with local glaciers (Hintereisferner) and later turned to the glaciers in the tropics. After many years of scientific research in the Cordillera Blanca and in the mountains of East Africa, he returned to Hintereisferner for detailed process studies. Georg Kaser worked on the 4th and 5th progress reports of the IPCC and is now also active in the current 6th reporting cycle.
