1.5 is possible at 64% probability if carbon-intensive infrastructure is phased out at the end of its design lifetime

Nature – 1.5C possible if carbon intensive infrastructure is retired at end of design life

“if carbon-intensive infrastructure is phased out at the end of its design lifetime from the end of 2018, there is a 64% chance that peak global mean temperature rise remains below 1.5 °C. Delaying mitigation until 2030 considerably reduces the likelihood that 1.5 °C would be attainable even if the rate of fossil fuel retirement was accelerated.”

Key assumption: In these scenarios, fossil fuel power plants, cars, aircraft, ships, and industrial infrastructure are replaced with zero carbon alternatives at the end of their life, and are phased out based on historical retirement data and age profile distributions.
