To clarify the link between existing infrastructure legacy and the 2°C target, we extend the work of Davis et al. (2010) by introducing non-CO2 greenhouse gases and the inertia in transportation-needs drivers. We conclude that climate policies able to maintain climate change below 2°C cannot disregard existing infrastructure.
