Emissions To-date Consistent with Worst-Case Scenario for Global Warming

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, August 3 Despite recent progress on bending the emissions curve and the global pandemic, cumulative CO2 emissions measured between 2005 and 2020 place us on track (within 1%) of RCP8.5, the most aggressive scenario in assumed fossil fuel use. Between 2030 and 2050, human CO2 emissions will likely […]
