Global Carbon Emissions Reach Highest Level in Recorded History

In total, global emissions from fossil fuels are predicted to reach 37.1 billion tons of Carbon dioxide in 2018, a 2 percent increase from 2017.

Global carbon emissions are projected to increase 2.7%, the researchers said.

A separate study found that Greenland's ice sheet was melting at its fastest rate for at least 350 years, which could lead to a rapid increase in sea levels.

Forty-three developed countries have collectively reduced their overall greenhouse gas emission by 13% from 1990 to 2016, but 13 of them including the US, Australia, Canada and Japan have increased their respective emissions during the period.

India's emissions look set to continue their strong growth by an average of 6.3 per cent in 2018, with growth across all fuels - coal (7.1 per cent), oil (2.9 per cent) and gas (6.0 per cent), the study said.

The figures were revealed as negotiators meet in Poland to draw up a rulebook to deliver the Paris Agreement on climate change, under which countries agreed to limit warming to "well below 2C" above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to curb temperatures to the safer 1.5C level.

"Emissions need to peak and rapidly decrease to address climate change".

"A robust global economy, insufficient emission reductions in developed countries, and a need for increased energy use in developing countries where per capita emissions remain far below those of wealthier nations will continue to put upward pressure on Carbon dioxide emissions".

The biggest emissions story in 2018, though, appears to be China, the world's single-largest emitting country, which grew its output of planet-warming gases by almost half a billion tons, researchers estimate.

In a broader sense, reversing the upward trend in global emissions comes down to two major challenges, Peters suggested-strengthening reductions in places where emissions are already declining, and reducing growth in places where emissions are still climbing. Before 2018, American emissions had been in decline for several years (although, some of that dip was a function of the USA outsourcing its carbon footprint to other countries).

Emissions of planet-warming gases will hit an all-time high this year, according to a new report.

However, the report's findings were not uniformly bleak for green businesses and climate campaigners. But the Communist Party needs unceasing economic growth to safeguard its legitimacy - so, it allowed its coal plants to increase production in 2018, for the sake of supporting (yet another) multi-trillion-dollar construction stimulus. The researchers said wind and solar energy are growing fast but from a low base.

Worldwide, renewable energy continues to see remarkable growth. Lots of places in the USA have already woken up to the fact that renewable technology has a market for it, and a lot of U.S. states and cities have made their own pledges.

The study said that while China and India still rely heavily on coal, the USA and the European Union are slowly decarbonising.
