UN Report: Global Emissions Surpassing Paris Agreement Goals

The UN warns that the planet is heading towards 3 degrees Celsius warming, exceeding Paris Agreement targets, with urgent emission reductions needed.

According to a new UN report, Earth is projected to warm by 3 degrees Celsius unless significant emission cuts are made this decade. The report emphasizes the necessity of a 42% reduction in global emissions by 2030 to meet the 1.5 degrees Celsius limit set by the Paris Agreement. Current and planned fossil fuel projects exceed the carbon budget for a 1.5 C limit, indicating a need for drastic changes to the global energy system.
