World heading for catastrophe without bolder climate plans, UN warns.


World heading for catastrophe without bolder climate plans, UN warns. The
world is way off course from averting climate disaster, and countries’
new commitments to cutting greenhouse gas emissions – unveiled ahead of
the Cop26 climate summit – “fall far short” of what is required to
reach net zero by 2050, the UN has warned.

With just days to go before the
critical summit, the UN Environment Programme has found countries’
updated “nationally determined contributions” or NDCs – which set out
the level of carbon emissions cuts they are planning – only take a
further 7.5 per cent off projected global emissions for 2030, while cuts of
55 per cent are needed to meet the 1.5C Paris goal. That means the current
plans would need to have seven times the level of ambition to remain under
that limit.
