G20 – all climate targets in, but large Emissions Gap remains

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 15 novembre 2015

climateAhead of the G20 Summit in Turkey on Sunday The Climate Action Tracker has looked at the climate action (INDCs, or “Intended Nationally Determined Contributions”) by all the member G20 countries, and calculates that, together, compared to a baseline level of emissions (the CAT’s ‘current policies pathways’), the INDCs contribute to bringing the G20 closer to its 2°C-consistent emissions level by only 8% and 15% in 2025 and 2030. The earlier G20 2020 pledges only bring them 6% of the way. Taken together, the CAT finds that the aggregate G20 emissions gap for the period 2020-2030 is actually larger than the global emissions gap. This is because, under a variety of effort-sharing methodologies, many non G20 countries will be allowed emissions increases. A political commitment from the G20 to increase its climate action as a group would have a disproportionate positive benefit on closing the emission gap.
omments from CAT: “The G20, which constitutes more than 80 percent of global emissions, and is responsible for an enormous emissions gap – even bigger than the global gap under collective effort-sharing. This weekend the G20 has an opportunity – and responsibility – to collectively act to close this gap,” said Dr Niklas Höhne, NewClimate Institute. “Without strong climate action by the G20, there is little the most vulnerable countries on the planet can do to stop the avalanche of very severe climate impacts heading toward them. To have any chance of holding warming to 1.5 or 2degC, the G20 as whole needs to lift its game on emission reductions” said Bill Hare, Climate Analytics. (foto: climate)
