Abstract

This article is about the process and outcome of carrying out the author's Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). The title of her EPQ was: 'Is It Politically Possible to Keep Global Temperature Rise "Well below 2 °C"?' - using the wording of the Paris Agreement to focus on the temperature threshold that scientists believe is safe for our planet. Detailing the international, national and local levels of politics combatting climate change, the EPQ led the author to research agreements, such as Paris, and national issues, such as the United Kingdom's electricity generation. She discusses the value of the EPQ. It allowed her to explore a real-world issue, which not only made her more engaged in learning, but gave her a greater understanding of the world we live in.
