Given the recent resurgence of climate skepticism and denial south of the border, it is more important than ever to clearly articulate the scientific evidence that supports the need to decarbonize the global energy economy. In this talk, I will outline the state of this evidence, beginning with the scientific foundation of global warming, and moving through some of the current challenges and uncertainties in the field of climate science. I will conclude by touching on my own research, which can be used to inform what level of emissions reductions would be consistent with maintaining global warming “well below 2°C” above pre-industrial temperatures, the climate target that the world has adopted under the 2015 Paris Agreement.
