Analysis: Major update to ocean-heat record could shrink 1.5C carbon budget

General - CarbonBrief - Key Takeaway: *Carbon Brief estimates that the revisions to the Hadley SST record would reduce the global “carbon budget” remaining to limit warming to 1.5C by between 24% and 33%, depending on how the budget is calculated. A smaller budget would mean humanity has fewer carbon emissions it can still emit before committing the world to 1.5C of global warming. At the current rate of emissions, this would mean the 1.5C budget would be used up in 6-10 years – rather than 9-13 – potentially making the target even harder to achieve. However, a number of scientists caution not to read too much into revisions to the carbon budget.*
