Emissions: The Reality of the Carbon Countdown

We can understand better what these emissions and temperature measures and target dates mean by looking at the facts on the ground. At the end of 2019 we passed the 1°C increase threshold. The increase of 1°C in average global temperature is by definition an ‘average’ and hides the reality of extreme weather conditions.


Carbon Emissions Countdown – The Failure

These convoluted and ambiguous carbon emissions targets that have an inbuilt failure expectation of 34% or even 50% are not targets at all. Whilst being adequate for a scientific study giving the parameters within which the findings are true and to what extent, it is however highly inadequate as a policy objective.
