Out now! 🚨 The latest #StateOfClimateAction 2023 report shows global efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C are failing across the board, with recent progress made on every indicator — except EVs — lagging significantly behind the pace and scale necessary. The report offers the world’s most comprehensive roadmap of how to close the global gap in climate action across sectors and can inform governments’ rapid response plan to the #GlobalStocktake at #COP28.

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. 🧵/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

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" /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… /3 Image

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 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

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.
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

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 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.

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 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.

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 Image

1/ Today's thread on our #ParisAgreement-compatible benchmarks report: all countries must decarbonise their #electricity sector by 2040, latest 2050. Emissions intensity must get to zero. #power #decarbonisation - see report here Image 2/ #Decarbonising the #power sector is key: without it, other sectors cannot do so. The 2030 benchmarks are also key - if countries are not on the right pathway by 2030, they cannot reach their 2050 goal. #renewables

1/Today, we launch a new project: defining & analysing a series of global & country-level #ParisAgreement-compatible #decarbonisation benchmarks, across four major sectors: #Power, #Transport, #Industry, #Buildings, each w benchmarks for several indicators Image 2/ We've derived 2030 & 2050 sectoral benchmarks for seven countries: #Brazil, #China, #EU, #India, #Indonesia, #SouthAfrica, the #US, taking into account each country's technical, infrastructure & economic circumstances #decarbonisation. Summary report:

See our new #COP25Madrid update: little sign of government action in the face of the #climate crisis. Their policies still take us to 3˚C, twice the #ParisAgreement warming limit. briefing: Watch our pressconf here [re-thread] Image The emissions gap in 2100 really has not decreased a great deal. #COP25Madrid. Noting this is not steady state warming, but simply warming in 2100 Image

Amid growing public concern and as #Climate climate impacts start to bite, governments must take bold action to address the rise in greenhouse gas emissions, but most of them are not - our latest update, released at #SB50Bonn today. Image Global progress is stalling. Last year, energy-related #CO2 emissions reached an historic high, with more than a third of emissions from coal, but the fastest-growing source is from natural gas, which grew 4.6% from 2017 to 2018. #climate Image

With government #ParisAgreement commitments, global warming in 2100 will be 3.0˚C - twice the agreed 1.5˚C limit. With current policies, it’ll be higher, at 3.3˚C. We have just released our annual update at #COP24… Image We have a new, optimistic scenario - the policies that have been promised and discussed but not yet implemented - this will get warming back to the #ParisAgreement #NDC level of 3.0˚C #COP24 Image
