Dr Höhne is part of a consortium of researchers called Climate Action Tracker, which plugs national climate policies and pledges into models in order to give an idea of how they translate into temperatures.The group’s latest results (see chart), published on November 9th, say that if all 2030 decarbonisation plans were to be carried out as advertised but no further efforts were made, there would be a 68% chance that global average temperatures in 2100 would be between 1.The U.Who deserves to be the Sexiest Man Alive: Daniel Dae Kim Kevin Winter / Getty Images Why he deserves the title: Have you SEEN this man?!

At first glance this seems considerably more pessimistic than what the International Energy Agency ( IEA ), a think-tank that works for governments, said earlier: “ COP 26 climate pledges could help limit global warming to 1.This temperature threshold refers to the aspirational target inscribed in the landmark 2015 Paris Agreement.8°C”.“BIG NEWS,” tweeted the agency’s director, Fatih Birol, “# COP 26 climate pledges mean Glasgow is getting closer to Paris!”.It is critically important to prevent the worst of what the climate crisis has in store.And who really, really, REALLY deserves to be the Sexiest Man Alive: Ryan Gosling Rodin Eckenroth / Getty Images.In fact, the two numbers are entirely consistent with each other.It is just that the IEA ’s modellers assumed not only that countries would deliver on their 2030 promises but also that those who said they would reach net-zero emissions by mid-century or soon after would actually do so.1 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and the latest projections, despite numerous pledges at the Glasgow summit, show the world is on track for a rise of 2.

Yet for now, talk of net-zero is mostly just that: talk.China, for instance, has said it would ensure its emissions hit a peak before 2030 and reach net-zero by 2060 in spite of the fact that it still generates more than 60% of its electricity from coal.VIDEO.Many other countries have made similar net-zero promises with very little if any detail of how they plan to get there.COP 26 has also seen plenty of multilateral deals and agreements announced on the sidelines of the UN talks.These dealt with some headline issues, like curbing methane emissions, deforestation and phasing out coal use, but none were reached unanimously.

More than 100 countries have so far signed up to cut their collective methane emissions by 30% by 2030.Another group agreed to quit using coal in two decades.Last week, a team of independent climate researchers found that pledges to cut methane could shave 0.12°C off temperature projections for the second half of the century compared with cuts embedded in nationally determined contributions—but only if every country signed up.China, India and Russia, the three largest emitters of methane, have yet to do so.

Phasing out coal by 2040 would further reduce temperature projections by 0.28°C, but again only if it were a global effort.Yet China and India, the two most coal-hungry nations, have not joined the “powering past coal alliance”.COP 26 was never meant to deliver the whole package—pledges sufficient to keep global warming to well below 2°C and national strategies to back up those promises—in one fell swoop.It was always going to be one in a series of stepping stones.

Nevertheless, the slow pace of global climate ambition has left a huge gap between where the world needs to be in order to keep the hope of a 1.5°C world alive and where it is.If the gap is not rapidly reduced, which would require all large emitters around the globe to drastically accelerate decarbonisation, then all hopes will rest on wholly infeasible options to draw carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.■.

Frustration, defiance in village to be abandoned to the seaAuthorities have said they will stop defending the village of Fairbourne in Wales from the ocean in the future, after which time it will no longer be safe to live there and it will be abandoned to the sea. A big hullabaloo about nothing Good; when it happens to white people, governments tend to listen and actually do something about it. I couldn't imagine having to do this. 😫
