1/ Continuing our threads this week on our #ParisAgreement-compatible benchmarks report, we first turn to #transport and the share of #electricvehicles, hugely important for #decarbonising our economy. Read on...
2/ For all #transport in all countries, low carbon fuels (#electricity, #hydrogen or #biomass) need to be at ~15-20% by 2030, & toward 100% in 2050. While 2030 benchmarks vary, all converge to global decarbonised transport sector by 2050. See our report  bit.ly/CAT_PSRsum Image
3/ Passenger #electricVehicles (or other #zeroemission vehicles) need to reach v high market share by 2030 almost everywhere (developed countries 95% market share) & 100% by 2040. The global passenger #car fleet will be almost 100% #emissions free by 2050. bit.ly/CAT_PSRsum Image
4/ Penetration of #EVs must link up w improved #fuelefficiency standards, esp for passenger cars. If global standards were at EU2025 level, it wld achieve a 1.9GtCO2 reduction. The US has furthest to go, esp w Trump Admin's proposed rollbacks. Full report bit.ly/CAT_PSR_full Image

BLOG: The #EU's scramble to get off #Russian #FossilFuels highlights the perils of a fossil-based economy: fossil gas hardest to eliminate. We debunk the claim that #gas is a ‘bridge fuel’ & show global gas consumption must rapidly decline. bit.ly/CAT_PSR_Gasblog 🧵/2
Despite the clear message that gas demand shld already be in rapid decline, its use in many economies continues to increase. Since 2015, a total of 14 G20 countries have seen an upward trend in gas’s share of primary energy supply, w particularly steep rises in North America. /3
Fossil #gas production is largely concentrated in two countries - #Russia and the #US - who together produce about 40% of dry natural gas. Some countries like the US and Australia have increased their production in the last decade. /4

UPDATED COUNTRY ANALYSIS: Australia has made very little effort to increase #climate action & is refusing to increase the 2030 target it first submitted 7 years ago, in 2015. Its plans won't meet 2050 #NetZero target. We rate it "Highly Insufficient" bit.ly/CAT_AUS /2 Image
For its policies & action, we rate Australia "Insufficient". While the govt insists it will overachieve its 2030 target, it didn't submit a stronger target to which it would be bound. Current policies result in 2030 emissions excl LULUCF 15% below 2005
bit.ly/CAT_AUS_polici… /3 Image
#Renewables in the power sector alone are projected to reduce emissions (excl LULUCF) by 20% by 2030 from 2005 levels. But as there are no policies to reduce emissions from stationary energy or transport, fugitives are projected to INCREASE emissions by 9% above 2005 levels. /4

Now that #COP26 is over, what kind of momentum do we need in 2022 to drive real emissions reductions and bring 1.5°C back from the edge?  A 🧵 - and a blog bit.ly/CAT_postCOP26
Our new rating system allows us to look at who needs to do what. First, a major overhaul of #NDCs, a number of which fall short of what's fair & needed to be in line w 1.5˚C. Some didn't increase ambition at all: here's looking at you, Australia 🇦🇺 Brazil 🇧🇷 Mexico🇲🇽 Russia 🇷🇺 /2
Targets: Some have increased ambition but need to go further - particularly Canada 🇨🇦  EU 🇪🇺 Japan 🇯🇵 Norway 🇳🇴 Switzerland 🇨🇭 and US 🇺🇸. Both China 🇨🇳 India 🇮🇳  are already set to meet their (weak) announced or submitted targets /3

CAT global update: Glasgow has a credibility gap between talk and action. If all govts met their 2030 targets, we would have 2.4˚C of warming in 2100. But right now, current policies put us at 2.7˚C. bit.ly/CAT_Global2021
A Thread 🧵
The 2030 #emissionsgap has only closed by 15-17% in the past year. Global GHG’s in 2030 will still be twice as high as what’s needed for 1.5˚C
There’s still a massive 19-23 gigatonne gap betw 2030 targets & 1.5˚C compatibility in 2030. These are the countries impacting the gap. What’s stopping action? #natgas & #coal. Still too much coal in the pipeline, and gas is still a fossil fuel /4

BREAKING: If all governments were to meet their promised #NetZero targets, warming in 2100 would be 2.1˚C. Our new analysis - full report here bit.ly/CAT_Nov2020 THREAD
2/ Our estimates include 127 government net zero promises, totalling more than 63% of global emissions. Including China, the US (Biden's promise), Japan, South Korea. bit.ly/CAT_Nov2020
3/ It's clear the #ParisAgreement is having an impact. This graphic shows the history of how we got here. Our full report here bit.ly/CAT_Nov2020 #climate #unfccc

1/ Governments are largely not making #ClimateChange action central to their COVID-19 recovery packages, despite some signs of good intentions - our new briefing for #CWNY, released today bit.ly/CAT_CWNY_2020
2/ We've analysed the post-#COVID_19 #recovery packages of 5 countries: #China, #EU27, #India, #SouthKorea and the #USA. Only two lean towards using the pandemic recovery to address the global #climate crisis: the EU27, and South Korea. First, we looked at overarching packages.
3/ We assessed 106 domestic measures across the 5 countries, differentiating between overarching packages & individual interventions, and rated them. The picture is not the most encouraging.
