A lower aspirational limit of 1.5 degree C would cost between $39.7 trillion and $56.1 trillion, but air pollution deaths could be reduced by 21-27 pct to about 100 million between 2020 and 2050 under the 2 degree C scenario, and by 28-32 pct to about 90 million at 1.5 degree C, according to the report.
The world's nations agreed on the 2 degree C limit in Paris in 2015, and committed to voluntary GHG emissions reduction targets that even if met, place the world on a 3 degree C trajectory, scientists say.

The $368 million, 19-acre project in Riverside near the University of California, Riverside campus, will be one of the largest and most advanced vehicle emissions testing and research facilities in the world. It will also be the world's largest true zero net energy facilities and is being built to US Green Building Council LEED Platinum specifications.
The facility will include test cells for analysis of heavy-duty vehicles, an advanced chemistry laboratory, workspace for accommodating new test methods for future generations of vehicles, space for developing enhanced onboard diagnostics and portable emissions measurement systems, education areas, a media center, flexible conference areas, and a large public auditorium.
The facility and campus will be designed and built to reach the highest possible levels of measured sustainability, with the intention to achieve LEED Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council and will also meet the state's CALGreen Tier 2 threshold for overall sustainability and energy efficiency.

Targeting the estimated 5.6 million U.S. commercial buildings which consume almost $150 billion in electricity annually, the company estimates its transparent electricity-generating windows could cut energy costs by half and that the market for SolarWindow™ glass products for tall towers and skyscrapers represents a $100 billion opportunity.
Additionally, SolarWindow entered into a Process Integration and Production Agreement with Triview Glass Industries, a glass fabricator based in Los Angeles. Initially working to establish manufacturing processes and a production line through this agreement, SolarWindow and Triview plan to fabricate specific SolarWindow™ electricity-generating glass products at commercial scale.

According to the Penn State project leader Tom Ricard, the building sector is about one-third of the global economy and involves everyone from building code officers to mortgage finance bankers and electricians and carpenters to architects and engineers. Buildings account for about 40 pct of humanity's carbon footprint, he said. "We have technologies today to drive those carbon emissions to near zero and create net zero energy buildings with fairly cost-effective technologies, but there's a number of barriers to that. Those include the way buildings are built and financed; the way people involved in the building sector traditionally interact and the kind of contractual relationships they have; and the technologies are new and haven't been proven in all parts of the world," Richard added.
The big question, according to James Freihaut, the technical director of Penn State at The Navy Yard in Philadelphia and a professor architectural engineering, is how do you get a serially fragmented industry -- where each entity is trying to maximize its own individual profit while minimizing its performance risk relative to the building -- to behave like a virtually, vertically integrated industry that can actually deliver known, measured system performance in a building?
One is that the cost differential isn't that great anymore, Richard said, and the second is that these buildings are high-performance, not just with respect to energy, but to human performance, including health and worker satisfaction and performance.
