Emissions fromthe five major economies set to cause a doubling of extremely hot years in many nations

The emissions of five major economies over a 40-year period look set to
double the number of nations that will experience “extreme hot years”, new
research warns. A new scientific paper published today (6 January) in
Communications Earth and Environment from scientists at ETH Zurich and
Climate Analytics has examined the impacts of the emissions of China, the
US, the EU, India and Russia.

The emissions from these five economies
account for around 53% of global emissions. According to the study, the
emissions that will be emitted from these economies between 1991-2030 look
set to double the number of nations that will be exposed to increasingly
hot years. Under current emissions reductions targets, 92% of all countries
are expected to experience extreme hot years every second year by 2030,
which is twice the number of countries compared to removing emissions from
those five economies.
