A new report is detailing how the greater impact of global warming could be properly mitigated if nations across the world can collectively work together to meet the Paris Agreement climate bullet points.

According to Eurekalert, Australian National University (ANU) and the Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science (ACEAS) have collectively worked to outline the necessary mitigation requirements.

The groups of scientists have reportedly examined “how much sea levels could rise if climate change melts the East Antarctic Ice Sheet (EAIS).”

The scientific team’s findings were published in the journal Nature and suggest that “by limiting global temperatures to well below two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, the EAIS is predicted to add less than half a metre to sea-level rise by the year 2500. If the targets aren’t met, sea-level rise from the EAIS alone could climb up to five metres in the same time period.”
