This article discusses a report that shows that no G20 countries are meeting climate targets agreed to in the Paris meetings.
Of the countries, only India has set targets that would keep global temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius, the upper limit recommended by the Paris Climate Agreement, if adopted globally.
Overall, the world is heading for a 3.2-degree rise, the organization Climate Transparency said
, in an analysis of the G20’s current emissions-cutting targets for 2030 published Wednesday.
But the report cautions that those targets are virtually impossible to reach at current rates. It follows similar warnings made last month
by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which found that the earth will reach the crucial 1.5 degree threshold as early as 2030.
