Jones has warned that if energy policies do not adapt, enough carbon dioxide will be being emitted to reach 1,000 parts per million in the atmosphere. According to the that equates to a 6 degrees Celsius – 11 degrees Fahrenheit - increase in temperature by the end of this century.
“That’s basically Miami Beach in Boston,” he said.
