That’s how fast the carbon clock is ticking

The MCC carbon clock demonstrates just how much carbon can be released into the atmosphere if global warming is to be capped at 1.5°C, or 2°C. By selecting a choice of temperature targets and estimates, you can see how much time remains in each scenario.


Betting on negative emissions

New technologies are hoped to reduce the CO2 debt. They aim to remove already existing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere—but also entail serious risks.


Carbon price floor to reform EU emissions trading

The EU carbon market is vital for a massive reduction of greenhouse gases. However, it is not fulfilling that role as the price of CO2 permits is too low. How can this be changed?


MCC world's third best climate think tank

The Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change was designated by the International Center for Climate Governance (ICCG) as the third best scientific think tank in the field of climate change.

Political map for the energy transition

Studies of the energy transition mostly take sides. But they make the scientists' positions and values transparent and thus improve conditions for compromises.

A new MCC study shows how more credibility of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) agreed upon in the Paris Agreement can be achieved.
