Global temperatures could increase by 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels within just nine years, according to a new study.

Under the Paris agreement, the goal was to “pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels."

The study comes amid debates whether the Trump administration will withdraw from the Paris accord.
