THREAD (Global Fossil CO₂ Emissions)

Global fossil CO₂ emissions are on track to rise more than 2% in 2018 (2.7%, range 1.8% to 3.7%). Emissions rose 1.6% in 2017 (leap-year adjusted) after a temporary slowdown from 2014 to 2016.

Countries that need to slowdown:
* China, up 4.7% [2.0–7.4%]
* India, up 6.3% [4.3–8.3%]
* Others (largely developing), up 1.8% [0.5–3.0%]

Countries that need faster reductions:
* USA, up 2.5% [0.5–4.5%]
* EU, down 0.7% [-2.6–1.3%]

#CarbonBudget #COP24 globalcarbonproject.org/carbonbudget/i…
There is a broad spread in CO₂ emissions per capita, but for a chance of 1.5°C or 2°C, countries with low per capita emissions also have to reduce emissions.

Yes, developed countries have to do more, but they can’t do it alone!

The growth in 2018 is driven by a return to strong growth in coal use, & continued stable growth in oil & gas use.

(We do not have a global projection of coal, oil, gas for 2018, but we know what will happen in the top-4 emitters)

#CarbonBudget #COP24 globalcarbonproject.org/carbonbudget/i…
Renewable energies (particularly solar & wind) are growing exponentially, but the growth has been too low to offset the growth in coal, oil, & gas use.

Supporting renewables is great, but we need more to stop emitting CO₂.

What drives growth in fossil CO₂ emissions?
•Economic growth (purple) is offset by energy efficiency (blue) to give energy use (green)
•Energy growth (green) is offset by carbon efficiency (orange) to give CO₂ (aqua)

#CarbonBudget #COP24 globalcarbonproject.org/carbonbudget/i…
Fossil CO₂ emissions continue to growth because energy & CO₂ efficiency (energy & climate policies) are insufficient to overcome economic growth.

Ramp up the policies, otherwise emissions will continue to rise...

#CarbonBudget #COP24 globalcarbonproject.org/carbonbudget/i…
To meet objectives of the Paris Agreement, CO₂ emissions need to peak as soon as possible, followed by rapid declines, reaching net-zero emissions sometime after 2050, & then removing CO₂ from the atmosphere at scale.

Thank my colleagues, but especially @robbie_andrew on the graphical material & analysis, & @clequere for driving the process.
