    All About Global Emissions In 2020

    Climate change: What the Emissions Gap Report 2020 tells us; The annual UNEP report on emission says the “the world is still heading for a temperature rise in excess of 3°C this century”

    Staff, December 9, 2020 (DownToEarth)

    “…The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) annual Emissions Gap Report 2020 showed] 2020 would be one of the warmest years on record…[It found]…Record high GHG emissions…Record carbon emission…Forest fires increasing GHG emissions…G20 countries account for bulk of emissions…[T]he top four emitters (China, the United States of America, EU27+UK and India) have contributed to 55 per cent of the total GHG emissions…

    The top seven emitters (including the Russian Federation, Japan and international transport) have contributed to 65 per cent, with G20 members accounting for 78 per cent…There is some indication that the growth in global GHG emissions is slowing…Despite improving energy efficiency and increasing low-carbon sources, emissions continue to rise in countries with strong growth in energy use to meet development needs...CO2 emissions could decrease by about 7 per cent in 2020 (range: 2–12 per cent) compared with 2019 emission levels due to COVID-19…[That reduction] is likely to be significantly larger than the 1.2 per cent reduction during the global financial crisis in the late 2000s…

    …[A]tmospheric concentrations of major GHGs (CO2, methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O)) continued to increase in both 2019 and 2020…126 countries covering 51 per cent of global GHG emissions have net-zero goals that are formally adopted, announced or under consideration. If the United States of America adopts a net-zero GHG target by 2050, as suggested in the Biden-Harris climate plan, the share would increase to 63 per cent…” click here for more
