Current Emissions Pledges Will Lead to Catastrophic Climate Breakdown, Says UN

Current national pledges to cut emissions will still lead to warming between 2-3 degrees C or 4-5 degrees F, according to a new United Nations report. Much more must still be done to limit warming below the 1.5 degree target set in Paris.

“This does not go far enough, fast enough,” said Simon Stiell, the executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. “National governments must set new goals now and implement them in the next eight years.” (From Dr. Katharine Hayhoe's weekly newsletter)
