Prospects of limiting global heating to 1.8C on the basis of commitmentsmade at the Cop26 climate summit are, though good, only “a hypothesis”

Prospects of limiting global heating to 1.8C on the basis of commitments
made at the Cop26 climate summit are only “a hypothesis”, the godfather
of the Paris climate agreement has warned.

Laurent Fabius, the former
French prime minister who was president of the 2015 Paris summit, said he
was “very impressed” by the commitments made in the first week of the
Cop26 conference, including a deal to reduce the potent greenhouse gas
methane, a net zero target from India, plans from China to reduce emissions
and commitments on coal.

If those plans are fulfilled, according to the
International Energy Agency, global temperature increases could be limited
to 1.8C, which is below the Paris agreement’s upper goal of limiting
rises to 2C but well below its tougher aspiration of capping heating at
1.5C above pre-industrial levels.
