    The Numbers On The Climate Crisis

    The hard truths of climate change — by the numbers; A set of troubling charts shows how little progress nations have made toward limiting greenhouse-gas emissions.

    Jeff Tollefson, 18 September 2019 (Nature)

    “…[A grass-roots climate movement that is gaining momentum across the globe] is driven in part by a new generation of young activists, and by mounting evidence that global warming is accelerating, which is increasing the odds of severe heatwaves in Europe, deadly fires in the western United States and massive tropical storms fueled by increasingly warm oceans, among other things. With greenhouse-gas emissions still rising, frustrated activists are taking to the streets to pressure politicians to keep their promises…[and turn back] the rapidly approaching climate meltdown…At a time when countries have pledged to curb greenhouse gases sharply, the data show that annual emissions spiked by 2.1% in 2018…

    …[China] is on track to see its emissions peak by 2030…but that is not consistent with keeping global warming below 2 °C…US emissions surged in 2018 [and the current administration is rolling back efforts, but US emissions] have been declining generally over the past decade because coal use has fallen, in favour of natural gas and renewables…The 28 EU nations account for more than one-fifth of CO2 emissions over time, but their collective annual emissions have dropped by more than 20% since 1990…[India’s use of coal and New Energy] are growing rapidly…Russia has invested little in renewables such as solar and wind…” click here for more
