In this article I tell you more about the main sectors & sources responsible for these emissions (with numbers & charts) as we continue our journey to find solutions and make responsible choices every day as individuals, communities, business leaders, or government.
Today, I want to tell you about the current global average temperature, why we need to limit it to under 1.5 degrees Celsius (°C), and the potential risks if we go over that threshold. Then, I will explain the “carbon budget”, why we need net-zero emissions commitments, and conclude with what we need in terms of international targets.
We hear and read a lot of things about climate change, emissions, carbon neutrality, and so on. In the past few weeks, governments and companies have made many promises about climate action. But how are we progressing? Let’s step back from the noise and look at what’s happening in terms of emissions.
