Study: gas emissions will increase temperatures by more than 1.5 degrees by 2030

An international team of scientists has calculated that the planet will warm by more than 1.5 ° C if countries do not start

pursue a tough policy to reducethe amount of carbon emissions. According to them, governments must halve emissions by 2030 to keep the Earth within the "safe" threshold of 1.5 ° C.

However, in their opinion, according to the setnational strategies submitted to the UN, emissions will be stabilized only by 2030. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called the situation a "red alert" for the future of the Earth.

“The data shows that none of the governmentshas not come close to the level of ambition required to limit climate change to 1.5 degrees and achieve the goals of the Paris (Climate) Agreement, ”he said.

According to scientists, emissions need to be halved,but in the current situation even this may not be enough. Some countries have not even submitted a climate plan, while others, like Australia, feel that they have not offered significant improvements over previous reforms, the researchers noted.

At the same time, Mexico and Brazil are criticizedfor the fact that they have practically not reduced the amount of emissions. At the same time, the countries of the European Union have made the biggest leap - reducing emissions from 40% to 55%.
