z. Climate change report card: These countries are reaching targets
from National Geographic
From Sept. 25:
It has been a little less than four years since 196 countries negotiated the Paris Agreement, under which they committed to taking steps to limit the increase in global average temperature this century to well below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) over preindustrial levels, and ultimately to limit that increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit). Despite the 2015 agreement, global carbon emissions increased 1.7% in 2017 and a further 2.7% in 2018; it has been estimated that the rate of increase in 2019 will be among the highest on record.
