  • Temperatures on Earth will shoot past a key danger point unless greenhouse gas emissions fall faster than countries have committed
  • Revealed “a litany of broken climate promises” by governments and corporations, accusing them of stoking global warming by clinging to harmful fossil fuels
  • Temperatures have already increased by over 1.1C (2F) since pre-industrial times, resulting in measurable increases in disasters such flash floods, prolonged droughts, more intense hurricanes and longer-burning wildfires, putting human lives in danger and costing governments hundreds of billions of dollars to confront
  • Projected global emissions from (national pledges) place limiting global warming to 1.5C beyond reach and make it harder after 2030 to limit warming to 2C
  • Ongoing investments in fossil fuel infrastructure and clearing large swaths of forest for agriculture undermine the massive curbs in emissions needed to meet the Paris goal

SOLUTIONS

  • Removal of CO2 from the atmosphere with natural or artificial means
  • Potentially risky technologies such as pumping aerosols into the sky to reflect sunlight
  • Rapid shift away from fossil fuels toward renewable energy such as solar and wind
  • Electrification of transport
  • More efficient use of resources
  • Massive financial support for poor countries unable to pay for such measures without help
  • Plug methane leaks from mines, wells and landfills
  • There’s still a “carbon budget” of 500 billion metric tons (550 billion US tons) that can be emitted before hitting the 1.5C threshold
