Comments Off on Runaway Global Emissions Make the Two-Degree Global Warming Limit Highly Unlikely

Global greenhouse gas emissions are expected to be eight to 12 billion tonnes higher than target levels in 2020, which means the hope of limiting global temperature increases to 2°C (35°F) this century is fading fast. These warnings come from a recently released United Nations report ahead of the body’s annual climate talks next week. Scientists previously identified the upper threshold of two degrees Celsius as the point where the worst effects of climate change could be avoided, but this would require a 14 percent reduction of emissions by 2020. Even if surveyed countries stick to existing emission-reduction agreements, according to the report, it is unlikely to be enough to mitigate the worst.
